NOT COOL: State Senator Anthony Muse to Speak at Tea Party Rally Against Equal Rights TONIGHT

The Baltimore Sun today reports that Maryland State Senator Anthony Muse is planning on speaking at the Tea Party rally against marriage equality tonight:
Pastors and elected officials are set to rally in Annapolis against same-sex marriage Monday evening, aiming to make a strong statement against the bill in advance of this week's senate hearing on the bill....

One opponent, Charles Lollar, said that if the bill passes it could "further demise morality and tear away at the fundamental framework" of the state and country," according to a statement. Lollar now chairs a political action group called the New Day Maryland which is supporting the rally. He campaigned against U.S. Rep. Steny Hoyer in the Nov. 2010 election and lost.

Lawmakers scheduled to speak also include state Sen. C. Anthony Muse, a Prince George's County Democrat who is mounting a primary challenge to U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin. East Baltimore Del. Cheryl Glenn, usually a strong labor vote who'se said that this year she will break with them and oppose same-sex marriage. Also, Del. Jay Walker, of Prince George's County, will take the stage.

This is a disappointing development since Mr. Muse is currently running for the United States Senate in the Democratic Primary. How are you planning on bringing the party together when campaigning against people like this? It is not too late to do the right thing, Senator Muse. History will not be on your side on this one.
