C.L. "Butch" OtterDAYS OF LOT – Idaho Gov. Butch Otter (R) vowed Thursday to keep fighting a U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing same-sex marriage in his state, even as that effort costs Idaho tens of thousands of dollars. “I’m not ready to surrender to a few folks in black robes,” Otter said during a gubernatorial debate. “I’m not ready to surrender the will of the people in the state of Idaho, as they expressed in 2006 in an overwhelming majority.” The Supreme Court ruled this month that same-sex marriage could proceed in Idaho, a response to an appeal to a federal court decision striking down the state’s ban. Otter has since spent $10,000 on outside attorneys to keep appealing. His fight on the matter has cost the state about $90,000 in total. During Thursday’s debate, Otter said his job is to defend “the entire Constitution,” and that states should decide marriage laws, not the federal government. More
