Group Says County Issued Illegal Gay Marriage Licenses

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The president of a gay conservatives group in Nevada says that if he could, he'd likely withdraw a complaint alleging Clark County officials illegally issued same-sex marriage licenses before the state's gay marriage ban was struck down earlier this month.

Ed Williams said Monday the Log Cabin Republicans of Nevada complaint filed Oct. 2 with the state attorney general was less relevant once same-sex marriage was legalized a week later.

Log Cabin Republicans support gay marriage. But Williams says it was important that it be done legally.

The group based its complaint on the first names of 10 couples who applied for marriage licenses in Las Vegas, including brides named Davy and Christopher and grooms named Meagen and Isabel.

A Clark County spokesman says IDs are checked to confirm gender.
