Hic-up on Same Sex Marriage

(Annapolis) A funny thing happen to gay marriage in the House of Delegates. It was suppose to pass Judiciary Committee without a problem. Del. Jill Carter and Tiffany Alston of Prince George's County were MIA on the committee vote. There weren't enough votes to get it out of committee. According to some reports Del. Carter held up the bill to get more money for Baltimore City Schools. Del. Alston says she needed more time to think about the vote. As you can imagine it wasn't taken likely by Delegate Heather Mizeur of Montgomery County.

In a change of heart Delegates Carter and Alston now say they are ready to vote for the bill. Can you say leadership arm twisting.
