Specter to Feingold: 'Good Riddance'

In case you missed it Spector and Feingold got into it today over same-sex marriage. The Senate Judiciary Committee voted today to send a federal constitutional ammendment banning same-sex marriage to the full Senate.
A Senate committee approved a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage yesterday, after a shouting match that ended when one Democrat strode out and the Republican chairman bid him "good riddance."
That one Dem of course was Feingold
Among Feingold's objections was Specter's decision to hold the vote in the President's Room off the Senate floor, where access by the general public is restricted, instead of in the panel's usual meeting room in the Dirksen Senate Office Building.
Spector claims he is "totally opposed" to it but felt it deserved a Senate debate.

BTW Jewish groups are split on a constitutional marriage
