BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The former web address of an Idaho Republican lawmaker has been taken over by a group claiming to be gay rights activists, decorated with rainbows and used to post text requesting that the Legislature meet with same-sex marriage supporters.

State Rep. Paul Shepherd from Riggins contends that recent court rulings overturning state bans on same-sex marriages violate the U.S. Constitution. He is backing a non-binding resolution urging Congress to impeach federal judges who violate the Constitution.

Shepherd hadn’t seen the new look when contacted by The Associated Press, although Republican legislative leadership had alerted him of the change.

However, he was well aware that his stance on gay marriage had angered some people. He received a long, profanity-laden voicemail Wednesday from an anonymous caller criticizing his opposition.

According to a domain register website, Shepherd’s website expired earlier this month and was taken over on March 22.
