Maggie was recently quoted in a Reuters story about a county clerk in New Mexico taking it upon himself to issue same-sex marriage licenses even though it is not legal in New Mexico. The Attorney General’s response? Do nothing.
Maggie Gallagher, an opponent of same-sex marriage and a board member with the American Principles Project, criticized the move by Ellins, saying he should allow the courts to decide whether same-sex marriage should proceed in New Mexico.
“Bypassing that process is lawless and in itself unconstitutional and politically motivated,” she said.
