"Vote Yes" Manager Tied to Corruption?

Bill Christofferson connects some dots today that link Lorri Pickens, the new "Vote Yes for Marriage" campaign manager, to a 1997 political scandal. Ironically enough, she was able to avoid answering questions in the criminal probe by invoking marital privilege. Yeah, that's one of those hundreds of rights that go along with marriage or civil unions--the right not to rat on your spouse in a criminal investigation or court of law. Your family's private conversations are respected, even if you're suspected of criminal activity. Christofferson writes:
And Lorri is now working to make sure that if a gay couple ever engages in illegal campaign activity, they will have to testify against each other. Some things are just better left between a man and a woman, the way God intended.

For those of you who are wondering, "Vote Yes for Marriage" appears to be run out of the Family Research Institute of Wisconsin. They've put out a couple of press releases recently, but so far there's no sign of a website. Meanwhile, the Wisconsin Coalition for Traditional Marriage, which was another project of FRI-WI, still has a website, but it hasn't been updated in months.

No wonder the FRI thinks we're asking for "special" rights instead of equal ones!

And Ms. Pickens' recent job? Spokesperson for "Quality Beef," an outfit trying to get a permit to drastically expand its operations. So she is used to spreading a lot of bullshit!
