Thorns to PA Attorney General Kathleen Kane for refusing to do her job

From the editorial page of The Pottstown Mercury:
THORNS to Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane for her refusal to defend Pennsylvania’s version of the Defense of Marriage Act against a federal lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union because she believes it’s unconstitutional. “By law, one of the fundamental duties of her office is to represent the commonwealth against lawsuits. Any attorney general swears to support, obey and defend both the U.S. and state constitutions and, most pertinently, discharge the duties of the office with fidelity,” wrote the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The Democratic attorney general’s actions, whether you agree with the opinion or not, abandon impartiality and constitute a refusal to do her job. That’s just not acceptable. 
Roses for flowers in the heat; thorns to Kathleen Kane
