The discussion over whether the District of Columbia should legalize the freedom to marry picked up steam and moved to the city’s neighborhoods over the past week as the Democratic Party committees in wards 8 and 6 voted to endorse full marriage equality for gays while the party committee in Ward 5 voted “no” on the issue. Meanwhile, another member of the City Council, Harry Thomas (D-Ward 5), said through a spokesperson that he would vote for a full marriage bill, making him the 11th member of the 13-member Council to inform the Blade in an informal survey of their support for the legislation.
