Boehner Secretly Raises ‘Debt Ceiling’ Of DOMA Defense Budget To $3 Million

Speaker of the House John Boehner has again just secretly raised the “debt ceiling” on the budget of his hand-picked attorney who is defending DOMA in court. 

This is the third time Boehner has increased the budget for Paul Clement, the attorney whose track record on defending DOMA in federal court is zero wins. In 2011, Boehner promised his “BLAG”  – the supposed Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group that is includes Democrats but has a majority of Republicans — to spend up to $500,000 to defend DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996 that bans the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages.
