Tammy Baldwin on Gay Marriage Ban: ‘Regrettably, Wisconsinites Must Live with a State Constitution That Enshrines Discrimination’

Openly gay Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) responded to today's unanimous decision by the Wisconsin Supreme Court to uphold the state's ban on same-sex marriage:

Baldwin“Like many Wisconsinites, I am disappointed in the substantive effect of today’s Wisconsin Supreme Court decision in the case of McConkey v. J.B. Van Hollen, et al. The ballot initiative that spurred this case was more a matter of politics than principle.
Regrettably, Wisconsinites, including many LGBT families, must live with a state constitution that enshrines discrimination.
While the effect of this ruling is a setback in our effort to repeal the discriminatory constitutional amendment banning marriage equality and civil unions, we will continue our quest for equality.”
