Rep. Judy Biggert (R-IL) was asked about her position on gay marriage, following a debate with Rep. Bill Foster, at a press conference on Wednesday night (video below).
Rep. Biggert declared that gay marriage was a "state issue," but added “we don’t have polygamy and bigamy and all of these things in the federal government," reports ThinkProgress.org.
Rep. Biggert said: "Well, I think that, I think that the country is close to this. I think let’s wait and see what the courts have to say. But it is a state issue. We don’t have polygamy and bigamy and all of these things in the federal government. It’s the states that take care of that... I’m for civil unions and I’m looking at the prospect of what’s going to happen."
