Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –
I have a civics question for you. Who is responsible for making sure that California follows its own laws?
The reason that I’m asking is because California seems to be breaking the law by issuing marriage licenses, and I can’t remember from high school who is supposed to fix that. As you know, The California Supreme Court ruled last June that we cannot issue marriage licenses to one group of people and not to another. And then Proposition 8 passed that said that we can’t issue marriage licenses to one group of people.
It seems to me that California ought to stop issuing marriage licenses to everybody – same-sex and opposite-sex couples alike. It is the only thing that is fair.
The people have said that Domestic Partnership is good enough, right? So who is supposed to get California to follow her laws?
Thank you in advance for your help,
