Cyclone Conservatives: Iowa: The Massachusetts of the Midwest?
Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives
Last Thursday, one man propelled Iowa squarely into the red hot social
debate over gay marriage. We've seen this brewing for sometime now.
There's been a few lawsuits floating through the legal system in Iowa,
just waiting for an activist judge to strike down the Iowa Code that
was passed by the an overwhelming mass of legislators, some of which
are pretty notable and important in today's leadership picture.

Iowa Defense of Marriage Act passed the Iowa House of Representatives
on April 6, 1998 by a tally of 89 to 10. Here's a list of those who
voted for it... This decision definitely put Iowa on the map for
political reasons other than Presidential politics and this decision
should give pause to all Iowans, not only Republicans and Democrats
(and everyone else in between).
