Mini Merge! or Why Virginia can provide domestic partner benefits while Allegheny County can't.

Ah, another small step toward Pittsburgh's consolidation with the County.

Virginia is a very hostile place to be gay. Still, they appear to be on the verge of offering domestic partner benefits to state employees.  Meanwhile back in Allegheny County, Chief Executive Dan Onorato … isn't the least bit concerned about it. I guess he's too busy scooping up endorsements. 

How does State Senator Daylin Leech reconcile pushing for marriage equality with endorsing a Chief Executive who won't offer his own employees health benefits for their gay families?  Inconsistent is the mildest thing that pops to my mind.  

Allegheny County.  We aren't keeping up with Virginia.  They just elected a Pat Robertson disciple as Governor.
