Michele Bachmann Says She Wants Marriage Restored in Iowa

 

New York Daily News:

If it were up to Michele Bachmann, gay marriage would be gone in Iowa.

In an appearance on Fox News Sunday, the conservative GOP candidate slammed a 2009 court decision allowing same-sex marriage in the state.

"Marriage, historically, for all human history has been between a man and a woman. It hasn't been the same-sex marriage," Bachmann said. "And remember that in Iowa, it was judges that made the decision -- not the legislature, which are the people's representatives, and certainly, not the people."

Bachmann argued Iowans are also against gay marriage, pointing to the removal of three out of seven state Supreme Court justices by Iowa voters last year after a conservative campaign blasted the judges for striking down a law restricting marriage to straight couples as a violation of the state constitution.
