Emotional Former MN Lawmaker Who Cast Anti-Gay Vote Pleads for House to Not Make Mistake She Did: VIDEO


More emotional testimony from the Minnesota Capitol marriage equality hearings today.

"I blew my vote," said former Minnesota lawmaker Lynne Osterman, describing her vote for the state's version of a Defense of Marriage Act back in the 90's.

"I didn't come to Saint Paul to single out same-sex couples and their families, but in my only term as a member," she said, her voice trembling, "I cast a politically expedient vote in favor of DOMA and I regretted that ever since. It was not in my conscience, or my own compass."
