Last week, President Obama's Justice Department filed a legal brief against marriage equality in which it compared gay unions to incestuous ones and that of an underage girl – in the sense that states have the right to not recognize marriages that are legal in other states or countries. The timing of the brief is awkward, given that next Thursday, June 25, the Democratic National Committee is hitting up the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community for cash in a fundraiser featuring Vice President Biden. As John Aravosis at AmericaBlog reports, gay donors, outraged at the legal brief, are withdrawing their support from the event. [Link]
