Booker To Perform Gay Weddings

U.S. Sen.-elect Cory Booker says he will officiate at weddings of both gay and heterosexual couples as the mayor of Newark now that New Jersey is allowing same-sex marriage.

Booker said in a statement Friday that he is excited to marry couples at City Hall starting at 12:01 a.m. Monday.

On Friday, New Jersey’s highest court ruled unanimously to uphold an order that gay weddings must start Monday and to deny a delay sought by Gov. Chris Christie’s administration.

The Newark mayor was elected Wednesday to the U.S. Senate and has been a strong supporter of gay rights. He says he has refused all requests to officiate marriages for the past seven years on principle.
