Alaska's Republican Leaders Laugh After Being Asked About Civil Unions For Same-Sex Couples

Alaska's Republican-dominated House Majority Caucus had a laugh at the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community's expense on Feb. 15 after being asked about civil unions for same-sex couples.

When a reporter from the Juneau Empire poses the question, the group openly chuckles before House Leader Lance Pruitt awkwardly responds, "What's important about this caucus is that we've focused on the things that really allow people to have a great life...[civil unions weren't] part of something that came up in our discussion."
