Pennsylvania AG To Refuse To Defend Ban On Gay Marriage

Pennsylvania’s Attorney General Kathleen Kane, a Democrat, is by all reports expected to refuse to defend her state’s ban on same-sex marriage in court. The move, similar to the Obama administration’s decision several years ago to not defend DOMA in court and California deciding to not defend Prop 8 in court — which ultimately led to their demise at the Supreme Court last month — likely will not have long-standing consequences.
That’s because Pennsylvania’s horrendous Republican Governor, Tom Corbett, likely will defend the ban in court.
