Today's South Bend Tribune carries a small article about the attack ad against Pat Bauer that ran in Sunday's paper. One small clip from the article made me pause... (emphasis mine)
Indiana House Speaker B. Patrick Bauer said Tuesday that newspaper ads supporting a proposed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage won't determine whether the measure will come to a floor vote.
If the amendment comes out of the Rules and Legislative Procedures Committee it will get a vote, Bauer said, "not because of this ad, because of the process."
Now, I know that the part I highlighted isn't a direct quote from Bauer, but I'm still intrigued. With the lack of information flowing out of our state-wide LGBT groups about what's going on at the Statehouse, everyone is busy speculating. Should this signal that the amendment may not come out of committee? That would be even better than an amended amendment, wouldn't it? What do you think? Do we have a shot?
