Now this cheers me mightily. Mary Cheney probably doesn't have a life-partner.
David J. Knight, 42, the son of state Sen. William J. "Pete" Knight, married his partner of 10 years, Joseph J. Lazzaro, 39, during a brief ceremony presided over by a volunteer marriage commissioner. The couple, who live in Baltimore, were accompanied by a friend, but no family members.
The elder Knight is a Republican senator from Palmdale, Calif., who authored a successful 2000 ballot initiative that strengthened California's ban on same-sex marriage. Proposition 22, also known as the Knight Initiative, states that only marriages between a man and a woman are recognized as valid in California.
