Alito (!) denies Pennsylvania clerk's attempt to stop marriage equality

by Jeremy Hooper

10384058 876297385729809 338472546650234793 NTheresa Santai-Gaffney has become something of a folk hero in anti-gay circles for her strident resistance against marriage equality in her state and her vow to fight all the way to the highest court in the land. This afternoon, a conservative justice delivered a swift end to that vow:

A U.S. Supreme Court justice let same-sex marriages continue in Pennsylvania, rejecting a request from a county clerk who sought to reinstate the state’s ban.

The rebuff by Justice Samuel Alito leaves Pennsylvania as one of 19 states where gay marriages can take place. The District of Columbia also allows same-sex weddings, and court rulings permitting them in nine other states are on hold. Alito, who handles emergency matters from Pennsylvania, acted without comment.

Alito might not have commented, but I have one: "Hey, Theresa, this isn't going to change your life one iota. Now please go uphold the laws like taxpayers pay you to do."
