Pam Spaulding has Clinton's complete statement on DOMA at Yearly Kos:
Secondly, DOMA, I believe that DOMA served a very important purpose. I was one of the architects in the strategy against the Marriage Amendment to the constitution, and DOMA gave us a bright line to be able to hold back the votes that were building up to do what I consider to be absolutely abominable and that would be to amend the constitution to enshrine discrimination. I believe marriage should be left to the states. I support civil unions as I've said many times with full equality of benefits and so I think that DOMA appropriately put the responsibility in the states where it has historically belonged and I think you're beginning to see states take action. I think it's, I think part three of DOMA needs to be repealed because part three stands in the way of the full extension of federal benefits and I support that. So that's the first.
I sent Pam an email, some of which she published:
Subject: Hillary's Claim About DOMA is an Absolute Lie
The FMA was NOT an issue when DOMA was an issue. The FMA was proposed in 2002.
She should NOT be allowed to rewrite history. She should also be asked whether she agreed with the Clinton campaign's decision to advertise his support of DOMA on christian radio.
What really occurred is gay groups like HRC did NOT fight this - instead, they were focused on ENDA and Hate Crimes - and gave dems a pass on this one.
