FOX 17 Questions Governor’s Stance on Same Sex Marriage & Alleged Scandal

Bjk74w4CQAAFwSwBATTLE CREEK, Mich. (March 25, 2014) — Governor Rick Snyder made a couple stops in West Michigan, just a day before the higher courts weigh in on same sex marriage in the state.

The governor was in Battle Creek, reading to first graders at Dudley Elementary school to celebrate “March is Reading Month.” After his hour-long visit, the Governor talked exclusively to FOX 17 about his role in the same sex marriage issue.

His office released a statement saying it wouldn’t be appropriate to comment on these matters while the legal proceedings were still going on. He’s referring to the stay that was issued Saturday night.

“It’s just mainly just following the law,” said Governor Snyder. “That’s how I view it as. The constitutional amendment was passed long before I became governor. Now, it’s being reinterpreted by a federal judge and I just want to make sure we stay in appropriate compliance.”

When asked about the Democrats alleging the Governor protecting a cousin during budget cuts, Snyder said there was nothing to those claims.

“It’s that political season where people make up all kinds of things,” he explained. “There was a long standing business relationship as far as the state for well over a decade and the contract goes before the term, before I became governor.”

      Never should physical harm be wished upon anyone. I do not agree with his stance on various things. He has done a lot to benefit Michigan. Unfortunately he is more Democrat than he is Republican. He needs to make clear where he stands. Is he conservative, liberal or independent? Fed up with his wishy washy mannerism in handling things in Lansing.

    This is one governor who can not decide which side of the aisle he is on. One minute he claims he is conservative, steadfast Republican then aligns with liberals, encouraging things that are far from conservative.

    I am a former Democrat who became an Independent because the Democrat party does not stand for what it used to. He is obviously not a true Republican and needs to stop running under a party he clearly does not represent. He needs to come clean and show his true colors, a confused party member.
