Arnold Schwarzenegger Married Gay Couples While California Governor: VIDEO


In a 60 Minutes interview airing tonight, Arnold Schwarzenegger tells Lesley Stahl that he performed two gay marriage ceremonies while governor of California, in his office. One of the marriages was an assistant and the other was for his chief of staff Susan Kennedy.

Says Schwarzenegger when asked if that means he is for gay marriage:

I don't have to be for gay marriage. I'm for that she gets the kind of wedding and the kind of ceremony that I had when I got married with Maria. That she happens to love a woman, and I am-- a guy that loves a woman, that is two different things. It doesn't make any difference. She should still have her ceremony.

Schwarzenegger vetoed two bills while in office that would have legalized same-sex marriage in the state. It was later legalized by the Supreme Court, and removed shortly thereafter by Proposition 8.

  1. I got the "Joe Kennedy" running for Barney Frank's seat. I'll take this clip, and look forward to hearing he has won in his district!

  2. The whole interview showed his total disconnection from REALITY. He says one thing but does the other. When called out on something he acts as though he doesn't hear the question and won't answer. He's a narcissist on a level rarely seen. This is behavior commonplace amongst Republican's.

  4. Whoa! I had no idea that Arnold was so whishy-washy on the subject of gay marriage. Now I’m definitely going to have to check out this interview to see what he has to say for himself. I can’t believe I didn’t know this was on last night! I’ve been so consumed with work around my office at DISH to keep up with anything these days. At least I still have the episode saved, since my Hopper DVR’s PrimeTime Anytime feature records everything on the major networks during primetime hours automatically. Otherwise, I would miss out on everything! I’m just wondering how he defends his action against gay marriage when he’s been such a disgrace in his own marriage!
