A newly filed lawsuit challenges Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon’s directive that state tax officials accept jointly filed returns from same-sex couples who have legally married in other states.
The bill entitled “Nathan’s law,” was named after three-month old Nathan Blecha. Nathan died in 2007 from lack of oxygen at a daycare.
Kerry Messer, president of the Missouri Family Network, says the controversy has united grassroots Republicans around Akin.
