Watch: Same-sex couples rejoice as Colorado governor signs civil unions bill

Published

on

Colorado’s governor on Thursday signed into law a bill that allows same-sex couples in the state to enter into civil unions.

Supporters of the bill packed into the History Colorado Museum to celebrate the signing of SB11, the Colorado Civil Union Act.

“It’s about fucking time,” one woman said after kissing her partner.

The new law provides committed gay and lesbian couples with many of the legal protections and rights provided to married couples, including adopting children and making end-of-life decisions for a partner.

The development is a dramatic change from 2006, when voters approved an amendment to the state constitution to prohibit same-sex marriage.

Colorado state Reps. Mark Ferrandino and Pat Steadman introduced the first civil unions bill in 2011. The legislation was blocked by Republican lawmakers until this year, when Democrats won back the state House.

During an interview on the Sunday Morning Futures program, Graham blamed his financial woes on the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

"Democrats try to destroy Judge Barrett at their own peril," Graham said. "Their base is going nuts. They've raised $300 million, ActBlue has, since the passing of Justice Ginsburg."

"I'm being out-raised 2-to-1," he continued. "Every Republican running in the Senate is being hit hard with all this money coming in from ActBlue. So if you want to help me, LindseyGraham.com. Five or ten bucks goes a long way."

Published

Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano, a former judge, on Thursday pushed back against Attorney General William Barr's call to charge violent protesters with sedition.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Barr told federal prosecutors that they could use sedition laws in cases where protests turn violent.

Napolitano explained during an appearance on Fox & Friends that charging protesters with sedition would be a "bridge too far."

"There's nothing wrong with aggressive prosecution," Napolitano said. "But this is not the case for sedition. I mean, the sedition laws -- which by the way, go back to 1798 -- the sedition laws were written for those who plan and plot to overthrow the government, either by violence or by some other means."
