Feingold: Supports Marriage Among Gays & Lesbians

Wisconsin Democratic US Senator Russ Feingold said Tuesday he supports giving gays and lesbians the right to marry.

Feingold tells The Associated Press today that he decided to express his support for gay marriage now because of the constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage which will appear on the Wisconsin ballot in November. The Democratic senator says the amendment is mean spirited.

Feingold says presidential politics has nothing to do with his position.

The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force says Feingold is the fourth US senator to take that position.
