Assholes of the week

Talking about standing up against the tide! This idiots are just trying to delay the inevitable:

Gay rights activists were ecstatic: Come Jan. 6, they thought, Florida same-sex couples would be lining up at courthouses around the state to get married.

But that is not what the people who issue marriage licenses in Florida — county clerks of court — say.

They are trying to determine whether a Tallahassee law firm is right when it says that every Florida clerk, except the one in Washington County, would be committing a crime if he or she issues marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The firm of Greenberg Traurig, legal counsel to the Florida Association of Court Clerks and Comptrollers, this week updated a memo it sent July 1 that says the same thing: If you issue a marriage license to two people of the same sex, you’ve committed a first-degree misdemeanor and could spend a year in the county jail.

One thought on “Assholes of the week

  1. On January 6 gay couples can get married in Florida. Yesterday Republican Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi asked the Appellate Court to reverse its recent ruling declaring gay marriage legal. Evangelical Bondi’s appeal and the mostly Christian Association of Court Clerks ruling are crap and the good people of Florida know it. These Republicans might just as well be pissing into the wind.
