Pennslyvania AG won’t defend ban on same sex marriage

Well here’s something kind of cool: Pennslyvania’s Attorney General, Kathleen Kane, announced Thursday that she won’t defend the state’s dumb ban on same-sex marriage in a lawsuit because she believes the law is “wholly unconstitutional.” The state has been sued by the ACLU, which is representing 23 Pennsylvania residents* in an attempt to overturn the 1996 law. Republican Governor Tom Corbett, who supports it, will likely assign the case to state general counsel James. D Schultz.

Kane’s refusal to defend the law has ignited the predictable grumbling about How Dare She Put Her Personal Preferences Above Her Official Duty, but Kane says she couldn’t defend a law that she believes is illegal:
