Louisiana Senator Taking Cautious Approach to Interracial Marriage


Considering that it’s not 1952, the case of the Louisiana justice of the peace who refused to marry an interracial couple seems like one of those political no-brainers, right? Condemn away, everyone! But prostitute-patronizing Louisiana senator David Vitter has yet to weigh in on the controversy, and when approached by blogger Mike Stark yesterday, he continued to dodge. Our bet is that with his reelection on the line, Vitter will end his bizarre silence in the very near future. [Think Progress]
