Despite successfully petitioning Maryland’s same-sex marriage law to the ballot, its opponents have been fairly quiet in their campaign to overturn marriage equality. This week, however, Maryland Marriage Alliance Chairman Derek McCoy made the unfounded claim that those in support of marriage equality are somehow trying “to intimidate people if they can’t win them fairly.”
MCCOY: On the people that actually signed the petition, they got the records from the Board of Elections. And in addition to Google mapping them out, they have actually started going to people’s addresses and having conversations with people at the address to tell them that they are haters. [They] knock on their door and try and intimidate them to go the other way and give them their long story about their personal saga about their life selection.
