Former Attorney General Ramsey Clark
has said that he's always supported marriage equality.
The 86-year-old Clark, who served under
President Lyndon B. Johnson, played a key role in the passage of the
Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Civil Rights Act of 1968.
Video journalist Jeff 4 Justice asked
Clark about his stance on the subject following an October forum on
Syria held in Glendale, California.
“As a supporter of equality, I'm
curious how you feel about the progress for the LGBT community and
are you yourself a supporter of marriage equality for gay and lesbian
people?” Jeff asked.
“Certainly,” Clark answered.
“Always have been.”
When asked about progress on civil
rights in his lifetime, he answered: “We haven't had nearly enough
progress as we need, or should have had. But the struggle continues
and we got to do better.” (The video is embedded on this page.
