MONTPELIER, Vt. — Vermont on Tuesday became the fourth state to legalize gay marriage _ and the first to do so with a legislature’s vote.
The House recorded a dramatic 100-49 vote _ the minimum needed _ to override Gov. Jim Douglas’ veto. Its vote followed a much easier override vote in the Senate, which rebuffed the Republican governor with a vote of 23-5.
This is very, very cool. Go us. Go Vermont. Screw the governor. Yay!
