WI AG: DPs not 86ed by B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T

by Jeremy Hooper

PegIn one of her last acts before leaving office, Wisconsin's outgoing attorney general, Peg Lautenschlager, this week issued an opinion saying that the state's recently passed ban on gay marriage does not invalidate domestic partner benefits. So when you couple Lautenschlager's recently released opinion with our own long-held one, the two jointly read:

The state's recently passed ban on gay marriage does not invalidate domestic partner benefits, yet does invalidate the idea that discrimination and unfairness are no longer alive in 21st century America.

Opinionated.

It remains to be seen if Lautenschlager will issue any other opinions or declarations before her successor, J.B. Van Holden, takes office on Jan. 3. However, we do hear a "You have to jiggle the handle in the ladies room's third stall or else it won't flush" edict is possibly in the works.
