Pennsylvania Governor, AG Battle Over Gay Marriage Ban

Governor Corbett wants AG Kane to defend the law


HARRISBURG — A spat between Gov. Tom Corbett's lawyers and Attorney General Kathleen Kane's top staff over enforcement of a gay marriage ban has escalated, through a letter in which Kane told Corbett not to tell her what to do.

"It is not your job to tell the Office of Attorney General — an independent agency — what its duties and obligations are," Kane's first deputy, Adrian King, told Corbett's general counsel, James Schultz, in the letter.
