Rep. Tamara Grigsby: A Voice for "No"

Representative Tamara Grigsby gave a moving and powerful speech urging her fellow representatives to vote "No" when the Assembly voted last month.

Featured as a "Voice for No" on the Fair Wisconsin website, she says there are two things most people don't know about the ban:

For one, I don’t think the average Wisconsin citizen understands just how far the ban goes. It goes way beyond banning same-sex marriage. It would, in fact, impact property rights, insurance rights, and could even jeopardize domestic violence cases. We must do a good job of educating voters on all of the far-reaching impacts of this amendment.

Secondly, I don’t think most people realize that this measure is nothing more than a political tool being used to take over governor’s seat. The way it’s been timed, the fact that it’s on the November ballot—at the end of the day, I don’t think most legislators care about the issue itself.
