GOP Candidate Says Ruling Will Lead to Incestuous Marriage

Wisconsin congressional candidate Karen Mueller (R) said that a recent federal ruling striking down Wisconsin's same-sex marriage ban could lead to incestuous marriages, the Tomah Journal reports.

Said Mueller: "We've got, for instance, two sisters, and these two sisters want to get married. They love each other. They are committed to each other. They want to spend the rest of their life together."

She said their lawyers could argue, "'We can just do away with that state law the same way we did away with sodomy laws.' Once you do away with that, you reveal what is really going on here."
