On Wednesday night’s All in with Chris Hayes, Alabama’s first openly gay state representative, Patricia Todd, spoke about state supreme court chief justice Roy Moore’s order banning probate judges from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Moore’s order, issued on Wednesday, defies the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges that effectively legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.
Said Todd of Moore’s move against equality, “Alabama’s a little slow to catch on, I guess. I’m not sure why he decided this order today but he’s wrong and my response is, get over it. You lost.”
Hayes was just as baffled by Moore’s decision, asking Todd, “Am I right that this essentially came out of nowhere?” Todd replied, “Exactly. I’m not sure what prompted him to do this today. I guess maybe he needs to raise more money for his foundation to pay his family members.”
