Illinois GOP Chair Reiterates Marriage Equality Support
The chairman of Illinois' Republican Party has been under fire from fellow GOPers after he announced he supports marriage equality and urged the state's conservative lawmakers to do the same. The surprising revelation has some calling for his resignation, Illinois radio station WBEZ 91.5 reports.

Illinois GOP Chairman Pat Brady, who became the state's GOP leader in 2009 when Republican Andrew McKenna stepped down to run for governor, encouraged Republican members of the Illinois General Assembly to support the proposed same-sex marriage bill. Brady probably expected members of his party's caucus not to support him, although he may not have anticipated the antipathy expressed by some of his colleagues on his side of the aisle.

Democratic lawmakers in the Prairie State tried to legalize gay marriage already this year but encountered a setback last week when "a death in one lawmaker's family and another senator's extended trip to Israel were enough to push the issue into the next legislative session," the Associated Press reported.
