Pennsylvania AG Kathleen Kane Targeted for Impeachment for Refusing to Defend Gay Marriage Ban


Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane, who in July announced "I cannot ethically defend the constitutionality of Pennsylvania's (law banning same-sex marriage), where I believe it to be wholly unconstitutional", is now being targeted for impeachment by Republicans, Right Wing Watch reports:

MetcalfeA Republican state representative in Pennsylvania is circulating a memo calling for the impeachment of the state’s attorney general, Kathleen Kane, for her “misbehavior in office” and “violation of her constitutional, statutory, and ethical duties.” Earlier, a Republican state senator also called for her impeachment and asked the legislature to reduce her office’s budget…

…The state representative proposing impeachment, Daryl Metcalfe, recently stopped an openly gay colleague from speaking in favor of marriage equality on the state house floor after the Supreme Court’s recent rulings on marriage, saying his colleague was in “rebellion against God’s law.” Metcalfe even opposed a resolution condemning domestic violence because he feared it would advance the “homosexual agenda.”

Said Metcalfe in his memo: "It is our duty to stop her from engaging in further misbehavior in office."
