State Rep. Joel Kleefisch, (R-Oconomowoc), has withdrawn a bill he allowed a wealthy donor to help write that would have given a break to some high-income divorcing spouses. The legislator defended his motives and said he'd spent a lot of time on policies ensuring "healthy family units."
And who isn't for family values?
Well, straight family values, as Joel Kleefisch's spouse, Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch, had this to say, "biblically," when running for her office in 2010:
Republican candidate for Wisconsin Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch compared same-sex marriage to marrying a clock during a radio interview.
“This is a slippery slope,” Kleefisch said. “In addition to that at what point are we going to be okay marrying inanimate objects? Can I marry this table or this, you know, clock? Can we marry dogs?"
