Times They Are A-Changin’: Tom Ridge Now Supports Gay Marriage

Tom Ridge, who codified Pennsylvania’s gay marriage ban into law in 1996, has signed an amicus curiae brief lobbying the Supreme Court to strike down California Prop 8 (which overturned a state law legalizing gay marriage). The court hears the case this month. The brief is signed by a group of people who fit the description “Prominent Republicans who realize opposing gay marriage will soon become political folly.” Also co-signing: Clint Eastwood.
