Ileana Ros-Lehtinen Against Amendment 2

In a surprising piece of news: Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen told Miami Log Republicans she is against Amendment 2.

“In Florida, the term marriage is already defined as a relationship between a man and a woman. Amendment 2 will involve the government in our personal lives by dissolving locally recognized domestic partnerships, endangering the legal rights of unmarried couples, and weakening business responsibilities such as healthcare and retirement benefits,” Ros-Lehtinen said in a press release.

Amendment 2 would place a law in the Florida constitution that would bar gay and lesbian couples from marrying.
