Maryland: Aide to Sam Arora Quits After Anti Gay Marriage Vote
A senior adviser to Maryland Del. Sam Arora has abruptly resigned in protest over Arora's vote against the state's same-sex marriage bill. Joshua Lapidus, Arora's legislative director, quit Friday night just after the marriage vote in a scathing resignation letter obtained by the Blade.

"I respect you and your beliefs, however I cannot respect your decision to place personal religious belief over the roles and responsibilities of the stewardship the people of District 19 entrusted unto you," Lapidus wrote. He added, "It saddens me that you are standing against the tide of history and ending your career over an issue that will no doubt be decided in the affirmative, with or without your vote, over the next couple years. So, I write this letter to inform you that if you vote don't vote for HB 438 l can no longer work under your employ."

Arora campaigned in 2010 in support of the bill and sponsored the measure last year, before suddenly changing his position and opposing it by the end of the 2011 legislative session. He voted against it Friday.
