The Marriage Amendment Sell Outs

Arline Isaacson of MassEquality may complain that "legislators keep upping the ante on what they want to get for [switching] their votes," but whatever it was, these 10 profiles in courage got it. All of them supported the right of the people to amend the state constitution in January, but voted against it Thursday:

Rep. Geraldo Alicea (D-Charlton) **
Rep. Paul Kujawski (D-Webster)
Rep. Christine Canavan (D-Brockton)
Rep. James Vallee (D-Franklin)
Rep. Brian Wallace (D-South Boston)
Rep. Richard Ross (R-Wrentham)
Rep. Robert Nyman (D-Hanover)
Rep. Paul Loscocco (R-Holliston)
Rep. Angelo Puppolo (D-Wilbraham)

Sen. Gale Candaras (D-Wilbraham)
Sen. Michael Morrissey (D-Quincy)

The contact info for all these legislators can be found here.

** Ran for office in 2006 pledging to support allowing the citizens to vote, but did not take office until after the first marriage amendment vote in January.
