Gov. Krispie Kreme Seen Here Struggling to Propel His Girth Out of Bed
The Associated Press reports a judge refused on Thursday to delay the start of same-sex marriage in New Jersey until a legal appeal can be settled, denying efforts by Gov. Krispie Kreme’s administration to deny same-sex marriages.
In New Jersey, as it stands, the state must grant marriage licenses for same-sex couples starting Oct. 21. But Kreme’s administration — a Republican who is considered a possible presidential candidate for 2016, is expected to appeal the denial of the stay to a higher court.
Judge Mary Jacobson wrote.
“Granting a stay would simply allow the state to continue to violate the equal protection rights of New Jersey same-sex couples, which can hardly be considered a public interest.”
Gov. Krispie Kreme’s administration has already asked the state Supreme Court to weigh in on an earlier ruling by Jacobson, who ruled then that the state had to allow gay marriage.
LGBT rights groups are pushing lawmakers to override Christie’s veto last year of a law that would have allowed same-sex marriage in New Jersey.
