I don't remember you saying that when the Cali AG refused to defend Prop 8.

This is not an illegal action, like what was done in San Francisco in 2004 that eventually led up to Prop 22 being tossed and the right to marry being granted by the CSSC until the passing of Prop 8.

I do believe that the County Clerks should move cautiously on this especially with litigation's pending!!!

I congratulate the County Clerk for taking a stand seeing as New Mexico really doesn't have anything in it's laws stating it is illegal, but at the same time, use some caution.......frankly it would be sad to have these marriages invalidated, though that is not necessarily a guarantee of happening like back in 2004 here in California!!!
