The leader of an anti-LGBT group who has joined with Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott to ban same-sex marriage, had his own marriage end after his wife began dating another woman.
According to court documents obtained by Lone Star Q, Corrine Saenz, his ex-wife, was dating another woman when she filed for divorce from Jonathan Saenz in 2011. Soon after, Jonathan Saenz took over as the president of the state’s top anti-gay group, Texas Values.
Earlier this year, U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia ruled that Texas’ ban on same-sex marriage violated the Equal Protection clause of the U.S. Constitution. Jonathan Saenz has been working alongside Attorney General Abbott, the Republican Party’s nominee for governor, to overturn the decision.
