Amends for heinous amendments: Crist regrets backing constitutional marring

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2012-12-14 At 10.45.52 AmLocal media get Florida's former Governor on the record:

Asked whether he regretted decisions or positions he took as a Republican over more than two decades, Crist discussed his 2006 decision to sign a petition to enshrine a ban on same-sex marriage in the state Constitution.

There's going to be so much more of this in the coming years. My take: Accept the change of heart but demand the individual take concrete steps to remedy the harms done.
