Wisconsin MapSame sex couples continue to marry in Wisconsin today after the judge refused to stay her ruling.

The New Civil Rights Movement reports:

A U.S. District Court Judge today refused to stay or halt her Friday ruling that found Wisconsin’s ban on same-sex marriage is illegal, paving the way for the majority of county clerk offices to offer licenses. When the day began, just two counties, Dane and Milwaukee, were issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. That quickly jumped up to five, and then by noon, fifteen. After Judge Barbara Crabb around 1:00 PM today ruled she would not intervene, the number of counties issuing marriage licenses shot up to at least 42, as of minutes ago. There are 72 counties in Wisconsin.

Teo thirds of Wisconsin’s counties are now giving marriage licenses to same sex couples – amazing! When will the window close?
