Outfront Minnesota takes on the gay marriage issue

I lived in Minneapolis from 1997 to 2003 so it is with some interest that I viewed an email from Outfront Minnesota on the same-sex marriage fight in Minnesota.

Outfront’s page is here.

On May 18, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune ran a story “TV ad zeroes in on same-sex marriage” and claims that the National Organization for Marriage is spending $200000 on television ads which Outfront says are intentionally misleading. The link is here.

The ad refers to the Minnesota gubernatorial race and leaves the incorrect impression that Minnesota governors could call for a referendum on the issue, which they cannot.

The ad also takes shots at the Minnesota DFL party which is an old coalition of “Democratic Farm Labor.”
