HOUSTON (AP) - Houston Mayor Annise Parker says her daughter faced difficulty in getting a Texas driver’s license because she listed two mothers as her parents on her application.

Parker is gay and married partner Kathy Hubbard in a California ceremony earlier this year. Together, they adopted daughters Daniela and Marquitta in 2003. Texas doesn’t recognize same-sex marriages, however.

The Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1twVCbj) reports Parker tweeted Friday that the Texas Department of Public Safety denied Daniela a driving test Thursday because of inconsistencies on her personal identification documents. In some spots Daniela listed Parker as her mother and listed Hubbard as her mother on others. Only on a third trip Friday to the license office did she get her license.

DPS spokesman Tom Vinger blamed the glitch on insufficient documentation to prove residency.
