Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com JULY 2, 2004 5 ^ national news Gay Congressman Barney Frank eyes Kerry's Senate seat NEW YORK — Gay U.S. Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) said he would run for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry in a 2005 special election if Kerry wins the presidency this year and if Republicans retain control of the House. Frank, is in line to become chair of the highly influential House Committee on Financial Services if Democrats win control of the House in the 2004 congressional elections. Frank discussed his plans for a possible Senate race at a June 26 appearance before the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association's annual conference in Brooklyn. He said becoming chair of the House financial services committee would give him an unprecedented opportunity to help shape U.S. policy on a wide range of domestic and international issues, including housing, banking and urban development. If Democrats win control of the House, Frank said, he would forgo a run for the Senate. But most political observers believe the Republicans are likely to retain control of the House. Over the objections of Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a Republican, the Democratic-controlled Massachusetts Legislature is completing work on a bill to strip Romney of his authority to appoint someone to fill a vacant Senate seat for a two-year period before the next scheduled statewide election. The bill would clear the way for Frank and other Democrats to run for Kerry's seat in a 2005 special election. Frank and his domestic partner, Sergio Pombo, marched together on Fifth Avenue in New York's June 27 Gay Pride Parade. i Barney Frank is in line to chair the House Committee on Financial Services if Democrats retake control of the House. Mayors fail to reach consensus on gay marriage ammendment BOSTON (AP) — A deeply divided gathering of the nation's mayors could not reach consensus Monday on a proposed resolution opposing a federal constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. The U.S. Conference of Mayors voted 46 to 44 to table the resolution, and an attempt to revive it was also defeated, 47 to 45. Stamford, Conn., Mayor Dannel Malloy, a Democrat running for governor, and an opponent of a constitutional amendment, said he believes the mayors wanted to avoid the issue in a year many of them are seeking reelection. The close votes, Malloy said, also indicate "there is no broad-based support in the nation to amend the Constitution of the United States to discriminate." The resolution was co-sponsored by three Democratic mayors — Thomas Menino of Boston, Richard Daley of Chicago and Gavin Newsom of San Francisco. Anti-gay marriage campaign under way in Mo. churches, homes JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - In churches and homes in cities big and small, the campaign for and against an Aug. 3 ballot measure that would add a gay marriage ban to the Missouri Constitution is playing out person- to-person instead of over the air. The proposal, Amendment 2, will offer the nation's first statewide vote on same-sex marriage since the highest court in Massachusetts ordered that state to allow it, sparking a national debate on the issue. While there may be TV and radio ads in the future, the campaign in Missouri is focused foremost on getting people to go to the polls — and persuading them to bring along friends. The Coalition to Protect Marriage in Missouri, a group supporting the ballot measure, has distributed hundreds of fliers to be placed in church bulletins around the state. The Constitution Defense League, a group opposing the amendment, has been holding house parties and campaigning door-to-door twice weekly in St. Louis, Kansas City, Springfield, Columbia and St. Joseph. Supporters of marriage amendment confident of place on Ore. ballot PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Sponsors of an initiative that would ban same-sex marriage like their chances of getting the proposed constitutional amendment on Oregon's fall ballot. The backers said last week that they might submit as many as 130,000 valid signatures to the state Elections Division. It takes 100,840 signatures to get on the ballot. The extra signatures would provide a cushion against duplicate names and signatures from unregistered voters. The signatures are due July 2. "Signatures are pouring in every day," said Tim Nashif, political director of the Defense of Marriage Coalition. Nashif, however, wouldn't guarantee that his group would gain a spot on the ballot. The state has been scrutinizing each petition sheet for signing and dating errors. Recent enforcement of signing and dating requirements has cost sponsors of other initiatives perhaps thousands of signatures. "We have a team checking for what we know are the secretary of state's rules," Nashif said. Iowa education board backs off sexual orientation protections CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Board of Educational Examiners backed off of a proposal to add sexual orientation to anti-discrimination language in its conduct codes for licensed educators. Board members, who met here June 25, said alternative phrasing will still provide some protection to gay students. Some board members thought lawmakers would delay adoption of the rules or object to the changes altogether if the phrase "sexual orientation" remained in proposed code revisions. The language appeared in a new code of educators' rights and responsibilities, and a revised code of professional conduct and ethics that the board has worked on for 21/2 years, documents show.
