Anti-gay marriage NE gov. leaves state to attend gay sister's Chicago wedding

Today, attorney Laura Ricketts, daughter of Joe Ricketts, the billionaire GOP founder of Omaha's TD Ameritrade, is marrying Brooke Skinner, a Twitter brand strategist.
     In attendance will be her anti-gay marriage brother, Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts, before he leaves for Europe for 10 days.
     Laura Ricketts actively pushed for marriage equality in Illinois, is a leader of LPAC, a lesbian-backed PAC, and is on the National Leadership Council of Lambda Legal. In a family of Republicans she was a top Obama bundler. She's also a co-owner of the Chicago Cubs.
    Last month, she was profiled in New York Magazine.
    Best wishes, Laura and Brooke!
