CT AG gives initial answer on defending marriage law. He’s “monitoring” the situation.

Nice work by Paul Sousa.

Yesterday, Paul announced an action to get Connecticut’s Attorney General to defend the state’s marriage law in federal court. The action had no sooner been announced when the AG responded:

“We are monitoring Massachusetts’ action and listening to views and opinions expressed by advocates on all sides of the issue,” Blumenthal said in an email.

Massachusetts AG Martha Coakley last month filed a suit challenging the DOMA. Blumenthal said that lawsuit would “resolve the key legal issues with binding effect and significant ramifications for every state and citizen across the country — whether or not Connecticut or any other state becomes a party.”

Okay, that’s a lot of legalese. Blumenthal needs to act. Not talk. And, we’re not asking for much here.

Check out the Paul’s website and participate next week. Our allies in Connecticut need to be more aggressive. That includes the members of the Congressional delegation.
