Here’s Zach Wahls defending his upbringing by his two moms. *fist pump*. Besides…I have a soft-spot for Midwest boys (Minnesota and Michigan, precisely). I know he’s Iowan, but hey it’s all good.
Iowa’s Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted 62-37 in February 2011 to approve a proposed amendment to the state constitution that would ban same-sex marriage, undoing the controversial 2009 Iowa Supreme Court decision. Iowans likely won’t get a chance to vote on the amendment, as the proposal is expected to die in the Democrat-controlled state Senate. This sort of ineffectual conservative political theatre is all-too-familiar these days. Whatever it was Iowa House Republicans were trying to achieve, it certainly wasn’t to offer a soapbox to Zach Wahls, a 19-year-old engineering student at the University of Iowa.
