UTAH: GOP Pols File Pro-Gay Marriage Brief With Tenth Circuit Court

Via Chris Geidner at Buzzfeed:
Several prominent Western-state conservatives and Republicans — led by former Sen. Alan Simpson — urged the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Tuesday to strike down bans on same-sex couples’ marriages in Utah and Oklahoma. Modeled after the briefing at the Supreme Court last year, the brief filed Tuesday aims to convince the court that the marriage equality cause is supported by people all along the political spectrum. The brief states that the signers believe that “there is no legitimate, fact-based reason for denying same-sex couples the same recognition in law that is available to opposite-sex couples."
Also signing the brief is former RNC chairman Ken Mehlman and former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson.
