Morning Sweep

The D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics has ruled that a proposed measure aimed at banning marriage equality in the District cannot go on the ballot because it would violate the District's Human Rights Act. The Council will vote on marriage on Dec. 1.

Legal delays on ENDA could delay the legislation from being voted on until February.

Police say that a suspect has been arrested in the slaying of Jorge Steven Lopez Mercado, a 19-year-old openly gay Puerto Rican man who was found decapitated, dismembered and partially burned on Friday.

The Washington Post laments the closing of The Washington Blade, the 40-year-old LGBT news publication.
