Another county clerk in New Mexico has begun issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The county clerk of Santa Fe County, under an order from a federal judge, started issuing the marriage licenses, according to the Associated Press: The first couple to get a license in the state’s third-largest county was Santa Fe County Commissioner Liz Stefanics and Linda Siegle, a lobbyist for Equality New Mexico, a gay rights group. Stefanics is a former Democratic state senator from Santa Fe. The couple walked into County Clerk Geraldine Salazar’s office shortly after 1:30 p.m., and asked if they were still denying licenses to same-sex couples.
Fantastic – will Albuquerque and Taos follow suit? The state’s gonna have to take some action on this soon, one way or another.
