6-11-14 gay marriage

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The latest count by The Associated Press shows clerks in 47 Wisconsin counties will issue licenses to same-sex couples who want to get married.  An earlier count pegged the number at 48, but an employee in the Sawyer County clerk's office said Tuesday that the clerk there had decided to wait until there was more definite direction from the state.  Hundreds of same-sex couples have wed in Wisconsin since Friday, when U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb declared the state's gay marriage ban unconstitutional.  But Crabb also has caused confusion the state by not issuing an order telling officials to issue marriage licenses or hold off. The judge has said she wants to give both sides a chance to weigh in on a proposed order first.
