Doubt cast on ability of governor to win legislation
By Associated Press

One analyst calls it the legal equivalent of a ``Hail Mary'' pass in football.

Governor Romney is seeking a delay in the May 17th implementation of gay marriage in Massachusetts. But before he can even ask the Supreme Judicial Court for such a delay, Romney must first get the Legislature to support the naming of a special counsel to represent him before the high court.

The odds do not seem to favor the governor.

Any legislation to stop gay marriage would likely face an uphill battle in the state Senate, where 22 of the 40 members voted against a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriages.
