Jodie Brunstetter, wife of state Sen. Peter Brunstetter, allegedly said that an amendment sponsored by her husband is partially meant to protect the Caucasian race.
Amendment One, which is so embarrassing that even the New York Times felt the need to oppose it, would constitutionalize the definition of marriage as a union between a man and a woman and make that the only domestic legal union recognizable by the state.
According to the Huffington Post (who picked the story up from Yes! Weekly):
...writer and campaigner Chad Nance spoke to a pollworker who told him that Jodie Brunstetter said, "The reason my husband wrote Amendment 1 was because the Caucasian race is diminishing and we need to uh, reproduce."
Nance has volunteered for a group working to defeat the marriage amendment and was until recently the campaign manager for a Democratic candidate for Congress. Nance resigned from the campaign to speak about Jodie Brunstetter's alleged remarks, according to Yes! Weekly.
