On second thought ...

Toledo Blade: Gov. John Kasich stumbled into candor last week on the topic of equal rights. Then he had to recant.

Asked about Ohio Sen. Rob Portman’s recent support of same-sex marriage ,the governor said in an interview: “If people want to have civil unions and have some way to transfer their resources, I’m for that. I don’t support gay marriage.”

But within hours, a spokesman for the governor issued a “whoops” statement, saying, “He opposes gay marriage and opposes changing Ohio’s constitution to allow for civil unions.”

A 2004 amendment to the Ohio Constitution bans civil unions and same-sex marriage equally.
