One of President Obama's controversial nominees to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission was on Capitol Hill, Thursday, to discuss same sex marriage.
Chai Feldblum is a gay activist who has made some alarming statements about sex and marriage.
A YouTube clip shows her saying, "Gay sex is morally good."
Also, she signed a marriage manifesto in 2006 that supported "committed, loving households in which there is more than one partner."
That brought up the issue of polygamy, which she was asked about in Thursday's hearing.
"Can you please enlighten us as to whether you support polygamy or not?" Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, asked Feldblum at the hearing.
"I agreed with the general thrust of the statement, that we ought to support caregiving relationships," she replied. "But the statement goes beyond what I would have said to communicate with that point. It was therefore a mistake to sign that document."
Feldblum said that she does not agree with polygamy and has asked for her name to be removed from the statement.
There were no fireworks in Thursday's hearing, but Feldblum could face some resistance in the full Senate.
