Local Commercial To Feature Al Simpson Supporting Marriage Equality

Apr 11, 2014

Former U.S. Senator Al Simpson is appearing is a commercial in support of marriage equality, which is airing across Wyoming, Colorado and Utah.

Wyoming currently does not allow same sex marriage. Simpson not only supports gay marriage but also says same-sex couples should be treated the same as heterosexual couples, when it comes to having or adopting children.

“I have seen the most dysfunctional children come out of a union of a man and wife that I have yet to observe out of a same sex couple," Simpson says.

Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage is currently under review in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. Simpson says if the Utah ban is overturned, it would set a precedent that could help Wyoming legalize gay marriage. Simpson also says he has received wide support from Wyoming citizens.
