With all the talk about the same sex marriage cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Senator Mark Begich has become part of the buzz.
The Alaska Democrat says same sex couples should be able to marry and should have the same rights, privileges and responsibilities as any other married couple.
The statement isn’t new, but it’s made a buzz in some circles, and the BuzzFeed Politics website thought it had a scoop. The senator’s comment is similar to a remark made last year to the Human Rights Campaign, an advocacy and lobbying organization for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. Neither statement was made in a formal news release from the senator’s office.
