Can you imagine the Governor of your state coming out and actually telling people that the few rights your relationship enjoys are unconstitutional? Of course not, don’t be silly. That could never happen.
If you’re straight, that is.
Governor Walker doesn’t want to defend Wisconsin’s Domestic Partnership law. Well, it isn’t his job nor the job of Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen to NOT defend a law that was passed by the Wisconsin state legislature. It is their freaking jobs. Van Hollen should lose his for refusing to defend the law. This isn’t about his own personal beliefs. This is about upholding a state law.
Where do these two jackasses get off not defending the law?
Both of them should lose their jobs. I pay taxes for to pay their salaries and I expect my money’s worth.
And, I’m not getting it.
And, you know what? I think marriage for straight people is unconstitutional. I don’t think the government should be allowed to choose who can and cannot get married. I think if not every relationship is acknowledged – then NO relationship should be. Marriage is a religious decision and it should never have been afforded civil rights in the first place.
Equality for all or equality for none.
Which is it going to be?
Wisconsin Attorney General J. B. Van Hollen doesn’t stand up for Wisconsin Laws…
We need an Attorney General who will stand up for Wisconsin Laws. Van Hollen isn’t the guy we should have. He needs to resign, be recalled or defeated in the next election.
I said every day I would address the issue of Van Hollen and today is no exception. He should resign. He apparently doesn’t want to defend our state’s laws from an attack and he shouldn’t be our Attorney General.
Wisconsin Attorney General J. B. Van Hollen doesn’t stand up for Wisconsin Laws.
But Fair Wisconsin does. (Read their announcement here) Everyday until the next election or someone who knows how to organize a recall against Van Hollen, I’m going to remind Wisconsin voters just how 1) he doesn’t defend laws passed by our legistlature and 2) how that costs Wisconsin taxpayers $175.00 per hour to bring in an outside attorney. Apparently, Van Hollen only stands up for those constituents who are as small minded and backward as he is.
Let’s all join together and make him a one-term attorney general. Let’s send a message to future attorney generals that we want them to uphold our laws. Period.
In case you’re wondering if I only want him to support laws I support, I support the Federal Justice Department’s stance to support DOMA in court. I believe that’s what attorney generals should do — even if they disagree with the law.
Apparently, Republicans don’t think that way. They think that somehow you have some made up right to only do your job as long as you agree with it — the exception is you shouldn’t have to do something unethical or illegal. Silly Republicans, running the government is an intellectual’s job.
Defend the law, Van Hollen, or suffer the consequences and lose the next election.
