You’ve probably never heard of her, but she was the leader of the Minnesota Senate Republicans, and she was one of the leaders of the anti-gay marriage legislation we have to vote against. She has since resigned under a cloud — she has apparently indulged in an adulterous relationship (the article, unfortunately, speculates that it was recently fired staffer Michael Brodkorb. I’ve met Brodkorb, and consider that libelous; I think slime molds would find it repugnant to mate with him.)
So now we come to this amusing poll, which questions the legitimacy of Koch’s marriage. It taints all of our marriages when a man and a woman violate their holy vows, don’t you know.
Yes, every American deserves the right to marry. 51.94%
No, "inappropriate relationships" desecrate the sacred institution. 48.06%
I tried to vote as I thought the highly principled Amy Koch would.
