Here we go again:
Asked about gay marriage by the Guardian at a townhall at Harvard’s Kennedy School on Friday, former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley said that he was “glad Secretary Clinton’s come around to the right positions on these issues”. He also released a video touting his longtime support for marriage equality.
However, Clinton campaign aide Karen Finney twice told MSNBC on Monday that Clinton has always supported gay marriage, and it was the media’s fault for not asking her the right questions.
But despite Finney’s efforts to pin the blame on the media, just last year Clinton said “marriage had always been a matter left to the states” in her view during a memorably tense interview with NPR’s Terry Gross. And as recently as last month, a Clinton spokesperson did not respond when asked for her position on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage.
