Tate calls on Walker, Van Hollen to stand down on gay marriage ruling

State Dem Chair Mike Tate called on Gov. Scott Walker and AG J.B. Van Hollen to “stand down” and allow a federal judge’s decision overturning Wisconsin’s gay marriage ban to move forward.

Tate, who led the effort to fight the gay marriage amendment in 2006, called on Republicans to “stop trampling on the rights” of gay couples. He noted Pope Francis said, “Who am I to judge?” when asked about gay priests.

“Scott Walker, J.B. Van Hollen, who are you to judge?” Tate asked. “Stand down, let the inevitable march of progress continue, and let it continue on our soil.”

Tate spent much of his speech knocking the direction Wisconsin has taken under Walker, saying his time in statewide office has been marked by criminal investigations. He said Walker has tried his best to tell voters that “everything is great.”

“Scott Walker, we invite you to keep talking the talk because you have no idea what is going to hit you when Wisconsin learns that Mary Burke actually walks the walk,” he said.
