Could La Crosse Clerk Be Charged For Same Sex Marriage Applications?
Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen warned county clerks Thursday that
prosecutors could charge them for issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, saying the state's gay marriage ban remains in effect despite a federal judge's ruling that it's unconstitutional. Reaction La Crosse County Clerk, Ginny Dankmeyer?
Van Hollen said that gay couples who have married since U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb issued her ruling last week aren't legally married and district attorneys could opt to charge county clerks who issued them licenses with a crime.
