Today, just hours before deadline, Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner broke and the BLAG announced they would no longer pursue legal action related to defending DOMA.
John Boehner admits the reason — at least one of them — that he is supporting DOMA in court is to show Barack Obama that the two-term President doesn’t get to make the rules.
Speaker of the House John Boehner’s BLAG last week claimed that if the Supreme Court rules DOMA unconstitutional, it will have caused “a direct injury on the House.”
The Obama administration last night filed a brief requesting the Supreme Court strike down DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Ac that bans the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages.
On “The Colbert Report,” Stephen Colbert used “The Word” to look at how the House GOP is “defending” DOMA, concluding gays can’t get rights until they’re wronged.
A lawyer hired by the Supreme Court says they don’t have jurisdiction over a DOMA case they agreed to hear, and the House has no right to defend the anti-gay law.
The House GOP yesterday filed a 60-page brief in the Supreme Court that addresses the upcoming DOMA case of Edie Windsor, and it reads like 1950′s propaganda.
Speaker of the House John Boehner has directed the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG) to appeal Wednesday’s federal court ruling that found DOMA unconstitutional.
House Republican leaders won a Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group committee vote today that will authorize the House of Representatives to defend DOMA.
