Sen. Chuck Grassley: My DOMA Witness Was Too Afraid Of Violent Gays To Testify

Think Progress has the transcript:

“The minority very much hoped to call a witness today at this hearing to testify in support of DOMA, I’m sure she would have done an excellent job. She declined, however, citing one reason the threats and intimidation that have been leveled not only her but her friends and family as a result of her support of DOMA. She will continue to write on the issue but will no longer speak publicly.”

How convenient!
