Taos makes six

Santa Fe New Mexican:

Taos County on Tuesday became the sixth and latest county in New Mexico to allow marriage between same-sex couples.

State District Judge Jeff McElroy ruled Tuesday that Taos County Clerk Anna Martinez must issue a gay couple a marriage license or present a legal argument why she should not.

But we do finally have some word from the GOP legislators fleshing out their plans. They’ve gone from unspecified vague to specifically vague.

Paul Becht, the Albuquerque lawyer for the GOP legislators, said it’s uncertain when and where their lawsuit will be filed. With more counties starting to issue licenses, Becht said, he’s trying to determine where best to file a lawsuit “so we’re not getting scattered results all over the place.”

NM is like a micro-US, getting equality one county at a time.

OK — that’s funny. That’s really funny.

Three of those counties are issuing licenses under court order. That should narrow his choices a bit.
