Town Clerk in Western New York Can’t Bring Herself to Marry Gays


Laura Fotusky, the clerk of the western New York town of Barker, will resign her $24,205-a-year position rather than sign off on marriages between two gay people. “I had to choose between my job and my god,” she tells Politico. She’s the second New York town clerk to refuse to sign gay marriage licenses, although the first, Barbara MacEwan, in the upstate town of Volney, is hoping to have deputy clerks do the dirty deed for her.
