Charlie Crist Clarifies Remarks on Same-Sex Marriage Ban

Crist Last night, closeted Florida governor Charlie Crist clarified remarks he made earlier in the day to Ed Henry on CNN's State of the Union, in which he expressed his support for a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

Said Crist in the clarification:

"In an interview that aired today, I was not discussing an amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning same-sex marriage, which I do not support, but rather reaffirming my position regarding Florida’s constitutional ban that I articulated while running for Governor. In fact, the interviewer’s question reflected just that. I am fully supportive of civil unions and will continue to be as a United States Senator, but believe marriage is a sacred institution between a man and a woman."
