Rick Scott: Pam Bondi is 'Defending Florida's Constitution' on Gay Marriage
With the ACLU wanting Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi to overturn the amendment to Florida's Constitution recognizing only traditional marriage in the Sunshine State, Gov. Rick Scott said he supports his fellow Cabinet member.
The attorney general is defending Floridas Constitution, which is her duty, Scott said on Tuesday. This is a matter that will be decided by the courts. Whatever the eventual outcome is from the courts, Florida will of course abide with it.
On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear challenges in the federal courts to laws recognizing only traditional marriage. Judges have ruled against the Florida Constitutions amendment, which was passed by 62 percent of the voters in the 2008 election, but the matter is still working its way through the judicial system.
