Website Launched To Help County Clerks

07.21.11 | Sarah Harnisch

So far, three county clerks in New York have quit their jobs over New York's new gay marriage law. A pro-traditional marriage coalition launched a website today raising funds to pay the salaries of any county clerk that wishes to quit their position to protest the gay marriage law.

Jason McGwire with New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms says, "the bottom line is they just don't think people should have to choose between feeding their families or their faith... so if they would like to financially contribute, they can help us out at couragefund.org."

Two of the county clerks that resigned are from Syracuse; the third is from Binghamton.      Same sex marriage becomes legal in New York on Sunday, July 24.
