Thank you Obama for throwing us another bone. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/06/01/AR2010060103686.html This is a great step forward in removing DOMA. I am curious how this works in states like Ohio with their DOMA-like laws that do not recognize even domestic partners. Civilly, Ohio does not recognize anything but a marriage and a marriage can only be one man and one woman. Fine, but when an employee is a federal government employee has a partner, they are now required to acknowledge the legality of the relationship. Which one trumps the other?
