House passes amendment striking funds for DC domestic partner registry

Just dropping this bit of hateful business in before I get started on the forum liveblogging. The House passed bigot Virgil Goode’s (R-VA) amendment to the DC appropriations bill (224 – 200), ensuring that Bush will sign it since he threatened a veto if the domestic partner registry funding remained in the bill.

Heath Shuler, a NC Democrat elected in a district that includes very gay Asheville, and a beneficiary of a lot of Blue dollars to win his seat, sided with the bigots. He also voted against hate crimes legislation. That will be remembered.
