SAM ARORA GOT MARRIED // SIGN A WEDDING CARD FOR THE BACKSTABBER

                1. SIGN - 2. SHARE - 3. DONATE - 4. WIN

Maryland lawmaker Sam Arora backstabbed constituents this year when he broke a campaign promise and voted against marriage equality legislation. The vote was very close, and Sam (a purported Democrat) nearly ruined years of effort by civil rights advocates.

No thanks to Sam Arora, Maryland became the 8th state to approve marriage equality this year. But already, anti-civil rights activists have announced that they gathered enough signatures to subject the new law to a repeal vote in November. We are confident that with enough support, we can make Maryland the first state in the nation to earn a majority of voters' support for marriage equality.

Today, Sam Arora is getting married, and ironically, his interracial marriage would've been illegal in 1967. His wedding is also taking place in Washington, DC during the annual Pride Parade. Let's congratulate Sam Arora on his marriage and re-double our efforts to make sure Maryland voters uphold marriage equality at the ballot this November.

Please sign this wedding card for Sam Arora, and we'll deliver a congratulations card to his office with your name on it. If you feel like getting him a wedding "gift," you can make a contribution in his "honor" to Marylanders for Marriage Equality, the main group defending marriage equality at the ballot in November.

I just signed a wedding card for temporary lawmaker Sam Arora. The Maryland Democrat broke a campaign promise to support marriage equality, but today he got married himself.

      because bigotry is abhorrent and there is no room for it in MoCo -- I sure hope Arora has a nice career in mind for when he is tossed out on his ignominious ass

      Sam lied to me (personally) about his support for marriage equality. He said he supported equal marriage rights for same-sex couples in the candidate questionnaire that he filled out for Equality Maryland; in his hand written statement where he solicited Equality Maryland's endorsement in the Nov 2010 election; and in a conversation that I had with him myself in Feb 2011. Sam lied -- and has never explained why. Constitutents need to know that Sam is a liar and vote accordingly in 2014.

      How would you feel if you had to wait for the legislature to vote on your marriage?

      Getting married right after you denied some of your fellow citizens the same right. And on Capital Pride, no less. My wishes to you consist of a middle finger and support for Jay Hutchins. Ass.

      You deny your constituents and residents of MD the right to exercise the rights you have - and then never bothered to explain your backstabbing. What a disgusting turncoat. We're aligned against you - don't bother running for re-election.
