Heard on NPR this morning:
Jason West, the mayor of New Paltz, NY said that he asked his attorney go over the state constitution before performing any same-sex marriages, and that there was no language forbidding same-sex marriages; in fact "under New York State domestic law, a marriage is valid once it is solemnized by an official or judge." And did you know that the State Health Department called on Attorney General Eliot Spitzer to seek an injunction to "prevent further illegal conduct", and issued a statement that "a clerk issuing such a license or anyone solemnizing such a marriage would be violating state law"? What the fuck do they think they're doing? Stories in the NYtimes, KRON4, etc.
