A strong proponent of marriage equality, California state Attorney general Kamala Harris refused to defend Prop 8 in Court. Now she is on CNN laying out the case for marriage equality. Think Progress reports:
California Attorney General Kemala Harris gave an impassioned, pithy defense of marriage equality during an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday morning in anticipation of the Supreme Court’s hearing on whether California’s Proposition 8, which overturned the state’s marriage equality law, is itself constitutional.
Kamala is a rising star in California democratic politics. She survived a squeaker of an election in November to become attorney general, after serving for seven years as a San Francisco DA.
She’s the model for the modern democrat – fierce, smart, outspoken, and strongly supportive of LGBT rights.
