I’m going to make this quick. When Eric Holder said that state Attorney Generals can choose to not defend anti-gay laws, he was wrong. Absolutely wrong.
State Attorneys aren’t paid to decide which laws to uphold and which ones to not defend. It’s wrong to think they shouldn’t defend a law.
Apparently, J.B. Van Hollen, the state attorney for WI – a Republican and a jackass – didn’t appreciate Holder’s comment. He said it isn’t Holder’s job to give advice. This from the hypocrite who only defends laws when he feels like it. Look it up – he refused to defend a Wisconsin law with which he disagreed at least once.
