Another Reason to Vote YES on The Amendment--and to Elect JB VanHollen

A while ago, 6 lesbians sued the State of Wisconsin, demanding benefit coverage of their live-ins. The Legislature and several municipalities sought to intervene in the case, arguing that they had standing based on the fact that such benefits would have financial impact on the State and municipalities.

They also argued that "Keg" Lautenschlaeger would not vigorously defend the interests of the State and the municipalities.

Yesterday, an appeals court denied the request for intervention, meaning that the State Attorney General's office will be the only representation against this ludicrous suit.

The Amendment will prevent silliness like these claims for benefits from going forward. JB Van Hollen will certainly apply all the resources and legal expertise available to defend the State and its subsidiaries from this action.
