Robin Carnahan on Civil Rights

 


Publicize history of US Colored Infantries in civil war

Secretary of State Robin Carnahan announced today that a new video, "A Soldier's Dream: The History of Lincoln University and the Men of the 62nd and 65th Colored Infantries," is available online. The video examines Missouri's connection to the civil war that goes beyond the battlefield and into the classrooms. A Soldier's Dream tells the story of the school's founding by the men of the US Colored Infantries using archival documents from both the school's library as well as the Missouri State Archives.

2005: No amendment; existing law prohibits gay marriage

The Iowa Supreme Court unanimously ruled that a state law prohibiting gay marriage was unconstitutional. The ruling shatters the argument used by Democrats who opposed Missouri's 2004 constitutional amendment preserving traditional marriage, claiming that an existing state law was enough to protect marriage between a man and a woman. Missouri voters overwhelmingly approved the constitutional amendment.

Robin Carnahan believed that a state law and her personal opinion was sufficient. Carnahan said, "I support the fact that marriage is between a man and a woman. That's all that I need to support." (Missourinet interview, October 20, 2004) In 2004, Carnahan was repeatedly criticized for her failure to support the amendment.

"Today's Iowa ruling clearly demonstrates that a simple state statute is not enough to protect the institution of marriage," said a GOP spokesperson.
