WASHINGTON, Aug. 3 (UPI) — Vice President Biden officiated a same-sex wedding at the vice president’s residence at the U.S. Naval Observatory on Tuesday.
Biden, after receiving his temporary certificate to officiate a wedding, oversaw the wedding of White House staffers Brian Mosteller and Joe Mahshie.
“Proud to marry Brian and Joe at my house,” Biden tweeted later. “Couldn’t be happier, two longtime White House staffers, two great guys.”
“I am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women and heterosexual men marrying women are entitled to the same exact rights,” he said on Meet the Press. “All the civil rights, all the civil liberties.”
