Illinois Governor Hopeful Wants to Ban Same-Sex Marriage

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting today that Senator Bill Brady (R-Bloomington), a GOP frontrunner for governor of Illinois, has proposed changing the IL Constitution to ban same-sex marriage.

When asked what this says about him as a candidate for governor, Brady replied, "I'm trying to give the government back to the people."

The ban would also disallow civil unions. The state senator from Bloomington proposed the measure as part of a package of ideas about taxes, legislative term limits and the redistricting process.
