Breaking: Oregon House Votes to Ban Discrimination Against Gays

On the 100th day of the 74th Oregon Legislature, the House voted 35-25 for SB 2, which would bar discrimination against gays.

Like this morning's House floor debate before a 34-26 vote for domestic partnership, the anti-discrimination bill also generated a lotta heat.

After Rep. Dennis Richardson (R-Central Point) said gays were more likely to commit crimes against children, Rep. Tina Kotek (D-Portland) rose in protest. Kotek, who's lesbian, told Richardson to stop defaming her character.
