New Mexico governor Susana Martinez doesn't even care that, because of her opposition to gay marriage, stylist Antonio Darden refused to provide her with his services. She never really liked him anyway:

"First of all, if reporters would ask me the first question, which would be 'Is he my hair stylist?' The answer is no," Martinez said, after having left a meeting of the nation's governors at the White House. "He did my hair three times when I first moved to Santa Fe. But frankly he talked too much ... I just went, 'You know, I go here to relax."

What a coincidence that Darden's chattiness started to bother Martinez at the exact moment that she was banned from his salon!
