Walter Mondale To Fight MN Marriage Ban
Former Vice President Walter Mondale, 84, has come out against the pending ban on same-sex marriage in his home state of Minnesota.
Mondale and former Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Kathleen Blatz are promoting Lawyers United for All Families, which is working to defeat the proposed constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage. The two co-signed a letter urging colleagues to vote no on the amendment question, which will be on November's state-wide ballot. "Our constitution is a hard-earned gift from those who preceded us, and an enduring promise to those who will follow us," Mondale said in a statement. "It should be used to protect individual liberty, not to take it away."Thank you Mr. Vice President!
