Delaware’s marriage equality bill (HB75) seems close to final passage, with a floor vote scheduled in the Senate on Tuesday, May 7. The House has already passed the bill and Governor Jack Markell, who introduced the it in early April, has promised to sign it into law.

National Organization for Marriage has sent some pathetic emails before, but the smell of desperation is particularly pungent in this latest.
On the heels of losing marriage equality ballot measures last year in Washington, Minnesota, Maine and Maryland, and marriage equality legislative efforts in France and Rhode Island this year (so far), NOM has nothing to show for all the cash they’ve sponged from supporters except failure and the derision of former collaborators.
