Maine Rep. Pingree Endorses Marriage Equality On House Floor

Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-ME) spoke on the floor of the House of Representatives yesterday about the importance of supporting marriage equality for same-sex couples, calling it “an issue of basic human rights and equal treatment under the law and I am confident we will do the right thing.” Watch it:

Pingree’s husband, hedge fund manager S. Donald Sussman, has been a significant contributor to Equality Maine. Activists there announced last week that they had collected sufficient signatures to place marriage equality on the ballot this fall.
