Attorney General Jack Conway refuses to defend Kentucky’s gay marriage ban. Welcome to the right side of history.
On Tuesday, Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway announced that he will not appeal the district court’s decision to strike down a part of the state’s same-sex marriage ban — forcing Governor Steven Beshear to scramble to find an outside lawyer to represent his interests in opposition to the decision.
When asked why he decided to go against the grain of the Kentucky political establishment, Conway summed up his position in a few simple words: “I would be defending discrimination.”
Conway is now the seventh state attorney general in the country — all Democrats — to refuse to defend laws that are against marriage equality. “The United States Constitution is designed to protect everyone’s rights, both the majority and the minority groups,” he added.
