Video: PA Attorney General Kane makes impassioned case for equality; compares marriage inequality to being arrested, jailed

by Jeremy Hooper

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane captured national headlines when she announced she, using her discretion, had determined that the state version of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act is just as unconstitutional as its federal counterpart and therefore will not defend it. In this cued-up clip, brought to us by Philadelphia magazine, the Democratic AG gives an impassioned defense of her stance, equating this current form of inequality not only to all other forms (gender, race, disability, etc.) but also to being arrested and jailed:

"But, but, but—we think it's gross!" exclaims the wrong side of history's (in)defense team.
