@Soulfox -- But it is not unusual to see an attorney general refuse to defend a law that he or she hates. Some have even gone so far as to not enforce laws that believe are unconstitutional.
That kind of behavior raises a lot of questions. We are talking about elected officials here, so can they argue that they are just representing the voters when the refuse to defend or enforce a law? Can they say that they were put in office to act in line with their convictions?
