Margaret Hoover, a conservative commentator and author, today spoke to the New York Times to make the “conservative case for the freedom to marry.” Hoover, a Republican, gay rights activist, and former Fox News contributor, announced her support for same-sex marriage in 2010. In this video, Hoover notes that the “Supreme Court has ruled fourteen times since 1866 that marriage is a fundamental right.”
Jeremy Hooper at Good as You notes:
Not so long ago, NOM branded a new phrase: “Margaret Hoover Republicans.“
Hoover, who was Advisor to the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security under George W. Bush, is one of the more than 80 prominent Republican signatories on an amicus brief asking the Supreme Court to find a constitutional right for all couples, including same-sex couples, to marry.
