Madison Mayor Alters Oath
"I cannot in good conscience take office without noting my strong opposition to the recent amendment that so blatantly discriminates against my fellow Wisconsinites who are gay or lesbian." - Madison, Wisconsin's newly elected Mayor Dave Cieslewicz, during yesterday's swearing-in ceremony. Half of Madison's city council joined Cieslewicz in altering their oaths of office, earning the wrath of conservatives. Fantastic.
