A jubilant Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) posted a video to his YouTube account Thursday celebrating the first day gay marriage became legal in his state.
“Tomorrow, marry who you want, marry who you love,” Ellison said, after bursting into song. “It’s all going on tomorrow because people got involved, people got active, because people did not sit back and wait for something to happen nor did they cry about bad things that were happening.”
“You go do it, you go be happy, you go live your life for liberty and justice for all,” he added.
