Go Menino!

The Boston Globe reports that Menino may defy Romney when it comes to enforcing the 1913 law barring out-of-states from getting married in Massachusetts.

Even if Menino is considering this only for political reasons, I hope he follows through. As has been noted by several media outlets, this law that was designed to block interracial marriages; the Globe has pointed out that until now, clerks were ordered not to check residency when issuing licenses. Hopefully Menino's refusal to carry out an ill-conceived, invalid law will spur other mayors to do the same.

Technorati: , LGBT, marriage equality, Massachusetts
