Updated: Obama reelection website updated to acknowledge lesbian moms' wedding in Vermont

Following President Barack Obama's statement of support for marriage equality, his reelection website has updated a photo it posted a few weeks ago of Equality Florida Executive Director Nadine Smith's wife and son.

From Mombian blog for lesbian mothers:

Remember the photo of First Lady Michelle Obama with lesbian mom Andrea Smith and her son from the White House photostream that I mentioned a few weeks ago? The Obama campaign also used the photo on its Web site on April 1, prior to the President’s marriage equality announcement on May 9. It said, “Logan’s moms Andrea and Nadine are strong supporters of President Obama,” but did not refer to Andrea (executive director of Green Florida) and her wife Nadine Smith  (executive director of Equality Florida) as married.

The Obama campaign has updated the website to reflect that Nadine and Andrea Smith were married in 2009 in Vermont, according to Mombian.
