Governator’s Secret Economic Weapon

Timothy Kincaid

May 20th, 2008

The Sacramento Bee reports

The governor appeared at an Environmental Defense Fund event to discuss products and practices that can help businesses become more environmentally sound.

One practice?

In the wake of the state Supreme Court’s recent legalization of gay marriage, the Republican governor said Tuesday in San Francisco he wants gay couples to flock to California for wedded bliss.

“You know, I’m wishing everyone good luck with their marriages and I hope that California’s economy is booming because everyone is going to come here and get married,” said Schwarzenegger, prompting laughs and applause.

Yeah, he’s kidding.

But I’m sure that the state’s hotels and caterers and wedding planners are taking the change in law very seriously.
