The move to legalize gay marriage in Maryland now waits for a verdict from the State Senate.  On Friday, traditional marriage advocates watched their majority position erode in the House of Delegates, as several members were convinced to back gay marriage at the 11th hour.  Delegate Don Dwyer led the effort to preserve traditional marriage in the Old Line State.  He explains how Gov. Martin O’Malley used the power of his office to win final passage.  Dwyer also rips three trusted colleagues who fought with him on the issue only to be “bought off” in the end.  Dwyer also sounds off on multiple elements within the Republican party that fiercely lobbied in favor of gay marriage.  He also discusses how the bill might fare in the Maryland State Senate and describes the new effort to have Maryland voters ultimately decide the issue through a referendum in November.
