The issue was never Rose Belforti herself; her re-election changes nothing

by Jeremy Hooper

But NOM and the New Yorker's Family Research Foundation are all kinds of happy about Rose Marie Belforti being re-elected to her post as Ledyard, NY, town clerk, even as she continues to say that God will not allow her to perform her marriage licensing duties in a state that grants equality in this are to same-sex couples:

But the thing is: The issue of concern was never Ms. Belforti, her overall job performance, or the town's regard for her role. The issue is the law of New York state and public officials' legal responsibility to perform the full breadth of duties prescribed by said law. And guess what? None of that changes now that Ms. Belforti has secured another term. In fact: Now the real conservation begins.
