The Wrap-Up: June 11, 2012

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) may have accidentally admitted that extending the Bush tax cuts didn't work. It's amazing that when a Republican tells the truth, it happens by accident.

If Mitt Romney becomes president you should REALLY hope your house doesn't catch fire, you have children that need to be educated, or you have to (for what ever reason) call the cops. He seems to think we don't need more firefighters, teachers, or policemen.

I guess it was too much to hope for that Rick Santorum would go into that good night (in terms of politics of course).

A federal investigation will commence to examine racial bias in "Stand Your Ground" laws like the one used as a defense in the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

A new Super PAC is forming to help elect Republicans that support marriage equality. Don't rub your eyes, you read it correctly the first time.

Some GOP Congressmen got their knickers in a twist over a lesbian commitment ceremony (not a marriage) performed on a military base. I guess it wasn't a happy day for everyone.

Former Governor Charlie Crist (R-FL) is responding to allegations of gay affairs during his tenure.

Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren marched in Boston's gay pride parade and issued a strong statement on LGBT equality. Not surprising at all, her GOP opponent Scott Brown was nowhere to be seen.

And lastly, an inter-denominational coalition is coming together to defeat an attempt to enshrine discrimination into Minnesota's constitution.
