On Tuesday morning, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton signed that state's marriage equality bill into law making it the twelfth state to legalize same sex marriage. Same sex couples are expected to be able to marry as early as August 1 of this year.
SATIRE ALERT (The following is not real news, folks...just a very funny take on Ms. Bachmann and her virulent anti-gay views):
On Monday, U.S. Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann (R), threatened to leave the state if Gov. Dayton signed the bill into law.
Anybody want her?"It breaks my heart to think that Democrats are willing to play politics with the lives of so many Minnesotans. And I hate to leave so many of my constituents behind, but I urge them--please, please--follow my example and get your loved ones to safety before it's too late."
