Vermont okays gay marriage

Towleroad reports that both houses of the Vermont legislature have voted this morning to override the veto of Gov. Jim Douglas, making marriage a reality for gays in that state. This on the heels of last week’s unanimous ruling in favor by the Iowa Supreme Court.

The Senate voted 23-5, overriding the veto by a wide margin, while the House squeaked through with a 2/3 majority with a 100-47 vote.
