The new aristocracy

Jerry Brown is not doing his job of defending the people of California’s vote on Prop. 8 because he says that he believes it’s unconstitutional. Last I heard deciding if something is unconstitutional is up to the courts not the Attorney General. Brown is effectively saying he’ll only enforce the laws he personally believes to be “constitutional”. Talk about extreme positions! What right does he have to put himself above the law? Suppose the Supreme Court upholds Prop 8? Is Brown going to say “sorry”? Coming from a lawyer who sees nothing wrong with using technicalities to get drug dealers off the hook Brown’s position seems to say that his personal opinion not his duty to the voters is what matters.
