Statement from attorney general candidate Susan Happ on judge's ruling
Provided to Action 2 News:
Jefferson — Today, Democratic candidate for Wisconsin Attorney General, Susan Happ praised U.S District judge Barbara Crabb’s decision to strike down Wisconsin’s ban on same-sex marriage.
“Judge Crabb’s decision is a victory for the people of Wisconsin, who pride themselves on equality and fairness,” said Happ. “As Wisconsin’s next Attorney General, I would never defend this unconstitutional ban because it violates the equal protection clause, which is in sharp contrast to my Republican opponent, Brad Schimel,” continued Happ. In today’s Wisconsin State Journal Schimel said he would defend the constitutional amendment that passed in 2006 banning same-sex marriage.
“It’s time we had an Attorney General who will fight for the people of Wisconsin and the values of fairness and equality,” said Happ.
