As Pennsylvanians know, when it comes to to gay marriage, Republicans are often the ones standing in the way. But as Washington state prepares for its governor to sign a gay marriage bill into law on Monday, one Republican representative deserves some credit: Rep. Maureen Walsh.
Among the highlights, Walsh talked about the death of her husband six years ago, and what she learned from that relationship:
"I don't miss the sex. You know? To me that’s kind of what this boils down to ... I mean I certainly miss it. But it is certainly not the aspect of that relationship that incredible bond I had with that human being that I really, really genuinely wish I still had. So I just I think to myself, 'How could I deny anyone the right to have that incredible bond with another individual in life?' To me it seems almost cruel."
