Connecticut Candidate for US Senate Supports Equal Rights

"I am proud that Connecticut was one of the first states to legalize civil unions and remain hopeful that we will be one of the first to enact full marriage equality... I would have opposed the Federal ‘Defense of Marriage Act’. I support the strengthening of any Federal non-discrimination and Federal Hate Crimes legislation. I believe that the rights enshrined in the United States Constitution belong to every American. Every American should be able to walk down the street free of violence, learn in a harassment-free environment, and work hard at their jobs without discrimination." Ned Lamont, Democratic candidate for US Senate for Connecticut, Aug. '06
