    people the law is on her side the law allows her to pass this off to others in the governor's office or executive-branch to defend this.

    If that is the case I stand corrected.

    Apparently you're wrong. She can under state law delegate defense to the governor's legal team or an executive department and she has chosen to do so. Since she disagrees with the law and may arguably not mount a vigorous defense of it, it is the right decision.

    I very much respect this woman for standing up for her principles. I believe she should leave her job because it is her job to defend the state's laws. However, great to see her standing up for what she believes is right. Tough call on her part.
    Another Democrat who refuses to uphold the oath of office they took. The same thing happened in California, Both the Governor and Attorney General (both liberal Democrats) refused to defend Prop 8 in front of the SCOUS in violation of the oath of office they took.

    This seems to have become the SOP of Democrats who have been elected to public office and have taken an oath but ignore the oath they took. From President Obama all the way down to dog catcher.

    she violated no oaths of office, dont know about the others you mentioned but this lady broke no laws and violated no oaths, if the rest of your post is true maybe start a new thread where that subject matters.

    I wouldn't be so sure. By virtue of the oath he takes the President of the United States has a duty to not defend laws he believes to be unconstitutional. I wouldn't be surprised if governors had the same duty.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too.

    From my understanding of Pennsylvania law, she is following the confines of her office. Not giving a half hearted defense by somebody who has already spoken out publicly against the law, is probably better for the laws survival anyway.

    She has refused to uphold the oath of office she took. It's what liberals do.

    You say you don't know about the others ? You should. It's a perfect example how liberal Democrats ignore the law and the oath of office they took.

    >"The Supreme Court’s decision Wednesday on Proposition 8 unlocked the door for same-sex marriage in California but also may have stifled the voices of the state’s voters.

    In its 5-4 decision, the high court ruled that the private group behind the citizen-initiated measure on the November 2008 ballot had no standing to defend Proposition 8 in federal court, even after California Gov. Jerry Brown and state officials refused to do so.

    The ruling on standing, while seemingly technical, has alarmed critics on both ends of the political spectrum, who worry that the decision effectively gives state officials the unchecked power to nullify ballot initiatives they dislike by refusing to enforce them or defend them in court."<

    Then you have the other liberal scam that Democrats use so they can say "I'm upholding the oath of my office." Probably the same scam that AG Kane will use.

    How a liberal governor flipped off the voters of California. Prop 187 was over whelming passed by the citizens of California. The Mexican government, extreme radical leftist and non citizen illegal aliens challenged Prop 187. Basically what Governor Gray Davis (Lib-D) did. After Governor Wilson appealed the ruling of it being declared unconstitutional in a lower court, which brought the case to the federal Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, in 1999, the newly elected Democratic Governor Gray Davis had the case brought before mediation. His administration withdrew the appeal before the courts in July 1999, effectively killing the law.
