This is how politics works in Delaware . . . .

You may recall that a bout a month ago there was a story that indicated that among Delaware's congressional delegation only Senator Chris Coons supports marriage equality.

Senator Tom Carper and Congressman John Carney had no position beyond civil unions, and no commitment to legislating for marriage equality.

Then we have the website for Equality Delaware, which is
Working to insure and promote dignity, safety, and equality for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Delawareans.
So I guess my question is how Senator Carper and Congressman Carney end up on the Board of Advisors of Equality Delaware if they are not on record supporting marriage equality?

An interesting issue in an election season, no?

On Carper and Carney's part, it's because they are afraid to let us own the issue of equality even though they don't actually believe in it (at least not on public record until now)

On Equality Delaware's part it's because the names Carper & Carney are more likely to get them donations or media interest than Groff & Gesty.
