Minneapolis Mayor to Illinois Gay Couples: Marry Up North
Rybak was in Chicago on Thursday morning where he kicked off a campaign to encourage same-sex couples to head north to tie the knot in Minnesota, which recently legalized gay marriages. The Minneapolis mayor appeared at an event at the Center on Halsted on the city's North Side.
Rybak says he's not trying to anger Mayor Rahm Emanuel by coming to Chicago to recruit same-sex couples and their business. But he says Emanuel would be doing the same thing if the situation were reversed.
