Four More Obama Cabinet Secretaries Come Out For Marriage Equality

Four Obama cabinet secretaries have followed the president’s lead and come out for marriage equality — joining a growing list of Democrats in embracing the freedom to marry for gay and lesbian people. “Secretaries Hilda Solis at Labor, Kathleen Sebelius at Health and Human Services, John Bryson at Commerce, and Timothy Geithner at Treasury” all support the policy, the Advocate’s Lucas Grindley reports. They join Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan, who supported same-sex marriage before President Obama announced his change of heart last month.
