McCain challenger Hayworth says men could marry horses under Massachusetts ruling
Former Congressman J.D. Hayworth (R-Ariz.) is not backing off his claim that a six-and-a-half-year-old same-sex marriage ruling in Massachusetts could conceivably pave the way for men marrying horses.
Hayworth had come under some fire — but more ridicule — for telling a conservative Orlando radio station on Sunday that the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court had defined marriage so loosely in its November 2003 decision legalizing same-sex unions that it opened the door to human-steed nuptials.
The problem, however, was that no such provision seems to exist in the court’s decision.
