Stam says he was overruled. Huh?

House Majority Leader Paul Stam tells the Fayetteville Observer that he didn’t want to put the overly broad marriage discrimination amendment on the ballot. He was overruled.

Stam, the Raleigh lawmaker, said he wanted a more narrowly worded amendment but was “overruled” by “national experts” he identified as the Alliance Defense Fund, a Christian legal advocacy group.

Nice to know who Stam is really working for in Raleigh.

Today’s Fitzsimon File includes a little more about the Alliance Defense Fund.

    When the likes of Stam admits they overreached, you KNOW they went too far.

    Fact of history: Beginning in the 1730’s it was widely known Ben Franklin was in a common law marriage and that he also had and son out of marriage.

    So what would the Founding Fathers think today of the NCGA and its desire to discriminate?

    he’s just distancing himself from the inevitable LEGAL FEES for NC that are going to follow this wretched amendment. I say we will hold these far right lawmakers responsible for every. single. penny. in wasted taxpayer dollars that will result if this passes.
