John Boehner: Justice Department Should Pay House GOP To Uphold Defense Of Marriage Act

Via: Huffington Post

WASHINGTON — House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Monday the Department of Justice should give the House money to defend the Defense of Marriage Act since the agency is not willing to defend the law itself.

“Obviously, DOJ’s decision results in DOJ no longer needing the funds it would have otherwise expended defending the constitutionality of DOMA,” wrote Boehner in a letterr sent to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). “It is my intent that those funds be diverted to the House for reimbursement of any costs incurred by and associated with the House, and not DOJ, defending DOMA.”

Boner and House Republicans have retained former Bush Solicitor General Paul Clement to defend the constitutionality of DOMA.
