Pennsylvania's AG Might Not Even Defend Their Gay Marriage Ban in Court
Facing a lawsuit from the ACLU, it looks like Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is going to refuse to defend the state government's ban on gay marriage. Pennsylvania, the only state in the northeast without provisions for same-sex civil unions or marriages, was one of the first states with gay marriage bans targeted by a suit in the wake of the Supreme Court's partial striking of the Defense of Marriage Act.
If it's true, the news, reported by the Philadelphia Daily News, based on multiple anonymous sources, isn't entirely surprising. Earlier today, the AP noted that Kane, a Democrat, supports gay marriage, and that Pennsylvania law includes a provision allowing the governor's legal team to defend state law in her place, should it be more "efficient," or in the state's interest to play it that way. Pennsylvania governor Tom Corbett opposes gay marriage, so it's unlikely that he'd decline to defend the law as well. The complaint, filed late Tuesday, names both Corbett and Kane as defendants. Kane is scheduled to speak to reporters on Thursday afternoon, when, apparently, she'll announce her decision regarding the suit.

No good comes from that. Our entire society loses. When genders self-choose, it's just wrong; always was; always will be.
It doesn't matter what the Left thinks and says. We are built as God meant us to be, not what is the result of aberrant treatment, behavior and/or choices. It's really simple.
Damn Pennsyvania, Cant you elect people that will stand up for your state????
And this is why gay marriage will be law in every state eventually. thanks to SCOTUS. No state or very few will defend the gay marriage bans or the “wise” state courts will overturn.
Yeah, this is definitely no surprise.
Kane is a complete scumbag.
Hah, PA has totally turned blue. They now have a GOP governor and Senator,but always dangle a carrot in front of the Republican candidate for president - but always go for the Dem. I think their demographic is the same as most states - the large, urban areas decide on who wins the electoral votes. This needs to be changed!
Why don’t you move to Gay Britain and change your name to Neville Chamberlain. You’d fit right in.
