Iowa Independent: Vander Plaats predicts own impeachment over gay marriage

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

Republican gubernatorial hopeful Bob Vander Plaats has renewed his
promise to end same-sex marriage with an executive order, even if it
means facing impeachment. Appearing on the show of controversial
Christian radio host Steve Deace, Vander Plaats once again said if
elected governor in 2010 he would issue an executive order stopping
same-sex marriage until the legislature either passes a law legalizing
it or passes a constitutional amendment banning it. "I can't give the
people the right to vote on this, but I think I can mobilize people
like [Senate Majority Leader Mike] Gronstal and [House Speaker Pat]
Murphy by saying no more same-sex marriages until you step up and vote
to make this law," Vander Plaats said.
