Iowa voters oust judges who supported same-sex marriage
November 03, 2010
Voters in Iowa have ousted three judges of the state’s highest court who voted to give legal recognition to same-sex marriages.
The results of the November 2 vote do not alter the effect of the decision by the Iowa Supreme Court. But defenders of marriage, encouraged by the ballot result, have vowed a new effort to amend the state’s constitution in order to restore the traditional understanding of marriage.
