NOM's Maggie Gallagher to Testify at Tomorrow's House Hearing on Defending DOMA

The American independent notes:

Gallagher The U.S. House Subcommittee on the Constitution is scheduled to hold a hearing Friday titled “Defending Marriage,” called by subcommittee chairman Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), who has recently called for the impeachment of President Barack Obama because of his decision to order his administration to no longer defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

People For the American Way Senior Fellow Peter Montgomery predicts Franks’ hearing will be a parade of “extremists.”

A witness list (not clear if it's full or partial) was just released, a day before the hearing, and NOM Chairman Maggie Gallagher is  at the top of it.

Also listed to testify are Professor Carlos Ball, Professor of Law, Rutgers School of Law, and Mr. Edward Whelan, President, Ethics and Public Policy Center.

The hearing is scheduled for 10 am tomorrow.

  3. She'd have been happier in life if she'd obeyed her natural calling and became a spokesperson for Entenmann's, not Bigotry

  4. They'd better have a plate of donuts on the table or someone is gonna lose a hand.

  5. Maggie Gallagher is a diabetic (she said so at a talk I attended) and obviously choices to lead a very unhealthy lifestyle. She is not a good role model or her children.

  7. To the gays that voted Republican last November, you got what you wanted!

  8. What I can't why the committee would have someone like Gallagher testify. The organization that she is Chairperson of has refused time and time again to turn over their donor list, as they have been ordered to by various courts. Shouldn't they, at the very least, ask only law abiding citizens to testify?

  9. THIS. THIS. Still here, Louis? Still sorry for trying to ruin our lives? THIS is where you need to drive your bus. Sign up to speak and then tell your story. And go up to her and tell it to her face. And then tell it in front of the press. If you're sincere in your desire to make right what you have wronged, tomorrow is where you need to start. Tomorrow.

  10. The sight of her makes me actually want to vomit all over my desk

  11. They should get Louis Marinelli the organizer of the bus tour to testify. He has admitted he was wrong and has come out in favor of Marriage equality. He has also stated the NOM is a fraud. . . it is just a smattering of people with big money support. . . they do not represent the majority of the country.

  12. As Benny Hill used to say, "You bloody fat cow!"
    She needs to quit the bus tour and change it to the treadmill tour. Obviously she's overcompensating all her guild by over eating. The woman gets larger and larger every time you see her. She's bloated with hate and lies!

    Posted by: Keith | Apr 14, 2011 12:06:50 PM

  13. I hope they call her up by her married name: Maggie Srivistav. If she's so pro-marriage why does this formerly out-of-wedlock mother use maiden name?

  14. Well said, NY2.0! While certainly not comparing them to the sad, self-loathing types who vote Republican, we have to wonder too if those who stayed home in November are not also partly responsible for developments such as this (and developments such as have taken place in Indiana and North Carolina and Minnesota, etc., etc.).

  15. can someone explain what credentials this woman has to even be there?

    Posted by: EO | Apr 14, 2011 12:11:52 PM

  16. Why can't I testify? There's absolutely nothing that qualifies this freak.

  17. I thought Dom DeLuise died?

  18. Maggie should be renamed "Gargantua" because every time you see her she's gaining weight faster than a semi being loaded with cargo.

    Hateful hag. I'm with the poster above who says "only law-abiding citizens should be allowed to testify". NOM has flouted every order to turn over their donor lists in three states.

    Posted by: Jonathan | Apr 14, 2011 12:28:26 PM

  19. I doubt if Maggie actually testifies. I don't think they can get a forklift through the doors of that building.

    Posted by: romeo | Apr 14, 2011 12:30:40 PM

  20. can she be charged with anything when she inevitably lies during this hearing?

    Posted by: Bryan | Apr 14, 2011 12:44:38 PM

  21. They should hold a hearing on the sin of gluttony. That is something she is qualified to testify about.

    Posted by: JD | Apr 14, 2011 12:49:39 PM

  22. I'm not familiar with the stance of the other people on the witness list. Can someone tell me if they will be there to refute the hateful vomit of lies this hag will no doubt spew.

  23. For the sake of everything that's good and right about our cause, please hold off on the weight attacks. Yes, she's obviously overweight and yes, I doubt anyone here finds her attractive. When you resort to that offense, at best you're preaching to the choir, and at worst, you're winning converts for our enemies when you attack a (largely) pointless factor. Buckle down and challenge her on a factual basis, or sit pretty and endure her special brand of hell.

    Posted by: Reality | Apr 14, 2011 12:58:54 PM

  24. I guess it's ok to bully someone because they peddle hate?
    I'm sorry but making nasty comments about her weight is just as bad as what she does.
    Yes: JUST. AS. BAD.
    If all you have is name calling... you don't really have much of an argument.
    (I tend to forget that 95% of internet comments are nasty and unproductive. I must stop reading the comments!)

  25. I knew she looked familiar...tweedle dumb.
