Wisconsin Attorney General Defends State Constitution

This week, United States Attorney General Eric Holder (D) made a statement indicating he doesn’t think attorneys general in states that have laws, from his perspective, banning homosexual “marriage” should feel obligated to defend them.  Wisconsin’s Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen (R) (photo, left) disagrees: “It really isn’t his job to give us advice on defending our constitutions any more than it’s our role to give him advice on how to do his job.”  Van Hollen further stated, “We are the ultimate defenders of our state’s constitutions.”

Wisconsin Family Action president Julaine Appling says Van Hollen is right, “I suppose we should be used to this current administration in Washington telling the states what they will, must or at least should do.  However, Attorney General Holder’s remarks show a whole new disregard for the rule of law and states’ rights.  Fortunately, we have a state attorney general who understands his job of defending our constitution.”
