Kentucky Attorney General Holds Back Tears As He Announces He Won't Defend Marriage Equality Ban
Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway has made our cold, black hearts pulsate with signs of life.
During one of the most important speeches of his career, Conway fought back tears as he confided in constituents that he simply cannot bring himself to support discrimination. “As attorney general of Kentucky, I must draw the line when it comes to discrimination," Conway said during the Wednesday press conference. Conway went on to reveal that he's decided not to defend Kentucky's ban on marriage equality in court. His announcement arrives in the wake of a federal judge's ruling that Kentucky must recognize same sex marriages performed out of state.
