The Demo Memo: Iowa County Judge Turns Over Anti-Gay Marriage Law
Excerpted from this post at The Demo Memo
What a nice surprise in my own home town today! Polk County Judge
Robert Hanson overturned an Iowa law that bans same-sex marriage. This

John Sarcone, the ruling will allow to apply for and be granted
marriage licenses in my home county. I have a deeply held personal

a great job of keeping marriage sacred, so that argument is not even
