46th Ward Ald. James Cappleman to marry partner in Washington

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A gay Chicago alderman says he's traveling out of state to marry his partner because he can't do it in his own city.

46th Ward Alderman James Cappleman says he'll go to Washington state next month to get married.

Cappleman says he and his partner made the decision to take advantage of the Supreme Court's ruling that granted federal marriage benefits to same sex couples.

He says it's sad that he can't get married here, but he'll keep fighting to legalize gay marriage in Illinois.
