Openly gay Colorado House Minority Leader Mark Ferrandino reacts after the Republican Speaker of the House used procedural moves to kill a civil unions bill. While the legislation had passed the state senate, had enough votes to pass through the house, and the governor had called a special session just to pass the bill, Republicans used it as a political football. The deciding vote in the "Speakers Kill Committee" was cast by Republican Rep. Don Coram - who has a gay son. That's right, he voted against his own family.
