Under the radar.
Last year, when Oregon's Multnomah County briefly allowed same-sex marriages, Raymen and Hansen put on tuxedos, got a license, and kissed. A local paper photographed them. Then in February this ad (pictured) ran on The American Spectator's Web site, suggesting, inaccurately, that the AARP favors same-sex marriage. Caught using a photo it didn't own, USA Next attempted to pay for the rights after the fact, but the newspaper refused and twice returned the group's money. Raymen and Hansen are suing.
