Tamara Scott, the new Iowa campaign co-chair of Michele Bachmann, has said she objects to gay marriage because it could lead to a woman marrying the Eiffel Tower.

Scott, who is also the director of the Iowa chapter of Concerned Women for America (CWA), joined the Bachmann camp last week.

While speaking with Bob Vander Plaats, the head of the Iowa-based Christian conservative group The Family Leader, Scott warned voters to oppose marriage equality because it would pave the way for legal recognition of other relationships.

“You talked about the red herring and you brought up 'polygamy' and I even have articles on polyamory. There are sets of polyamory, those are people who are involved in a committed relationship – a man and a wife or a boyfriend and girlfriend, that is their committed relationship – then they have several other relationships in combination with that.”

Scott said polyamorous relationships existed in Massachusetts and Illinois, two states that recognize gay unions. She then suggested that that gay marriage would lead to people marrying objects, such as “when a woman marries the Eiffel Tower.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.

According to Right Wing Watch, Scott has previously said that supporting gay marriage would jeopardize a person's chances of entering Heaven.
