Gambling amendment could sabatouge marriage equality amendment in MarylandBY STEVE WILLIAMS

Could a proposal to open a new casino in Maryland doom the state’s new marriage equality law? That’s the fear LGBT rights groups have expressed this week.

Governor O’Malley is backing a measure that would allow the state’s sixth casino to be built in conservative Prince George County and is expected to introduce a draft bill for the Legislature’s attention during the August special session. If approved by both chambers, the measure would go before voters at the November ballot where voters will also be deciding on the state’s marriage equality law, which is due to come into force, if retained, in January.
