Missouri Governor Jay Nixon talks repeal of same-sex marriage ban

Just one day after the ACLU filed a lawsuit intending to have Missouri's same-sex marriage ban ruled unconstitutional Gov. Nixon makes it clear which side he's on. He announced today that he feels the voters should have a chance to repeal the amendment and if it was on the ballot he would vote to repeal.

“My personal belief is that we shouldn't treat folks differently because of who they are and who they love. If folks want to get married, they should be able to get married,” Nixon said.

Nixon made this announcement after already being under fire for his executive order allowing same-sex couples who qualified to file jointly on their federal taxes to file jointly on their Missouri state income taxes as well. Republican Nick Marshall along with seven co-sponsors filed letters of impeachment over this common sense decision. He doesn't appear to be worried.
