Legislators support DOMA repeal

Some legislators are taking aim at the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) after President Obama affirmed his support for same-sex marriage last week, reports Politico. Since then, according to congressional records, Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Rep. Norm Dicks (D-Wash.) and Del. Donna Christensen (D-Virgin Islands) have signed onto the Respect for Marriage Act, a bill that would repeal DOMA. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) have also announced support for legal same-sex marriages.
