Bob Barr, Running for Congress Again, Doesn't Want to Discuss Current DOMA PositionSubmitted by PaulFanDC on Wed, 06/26/2013 - 20:01
Former Rep. Bob Barr, R-Ga., authored and introduced the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996. During his 2008 candidacy for president as the Libertarian Party's nominee he apologized for his stewardship of the bill, which was partially invalidated Wednesday by the U.S. Supreme Court.
But now Barr is running for Congress again, as a Republican, and he's not going to speak about the issue.
"We're not issuing any comment on this," Barr campaign manager Jeff Breedlove told U.S. News. "That's not going to change."
