The State reports:
Gov. Nikki Haley will mount a defense in federal court against a challenge by two Lexington County women to the state’s 1996 Defense of Marriage Law and a section of the state constitution that bans gay marriages in South Carolina. “Gov. Haley, like the majority of South Carolinians, supports traditional marriage as defined between one man and one woman, and in accordance with state law, will continue to uphold those values. The legislature has spoken on this issue, the people have spoken on this issue, and the governor remains resolute in her support of South Carolina’s Constitution and state’s rights and this lawsuit doesn’t change that,” said Haley spokesman Doug Mayer in an email Tuesday.
History won’t look kindly on Governor Haley and her ilk.
