As Gov. Scott Walker was supporting Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen’s fight to uphold Wisconsin’s same-sex marriage ban last month, his teenage son was busy serving as an official witness to a family member’s own same-sex marriage.
An official state record shows Alex Walker, a UW-Madison student whose Facebook page lists him as an intern with the Republican Party of Wisconsin, signed as an official witness to the marriage of Shelli Marquardt and Cathy Priem on June 9th in Waukesha County.
Laurel Patrick, a spokesperson for Gov. Walker, confirmed Thursday afternoon that one of the two witness signatures on Marquardt and Priem’s marriage certificate belongs to Alex Walker.
