SHOULD GOVERNOR FOLLOW THE STATE LAW?

Editor:

When the U.S. Constitution was being drafted, didn’t the Founders agree that the affairs of the various state remain with those states?

Nevadans voted in 2002 to support traditional marriage only. Since then, activists have found federal judges who agree that the will of the people violates the rights of those individuals who, like President Obama, believe that the United States must be fundamentally changed.

Gov. Brian Sandoval and his attorney general are following the path of U.S. Attorney General Holder when they say they will not uphold laws with which they disagree. I question whether they are not obligated to follow the laws they were elected to defend.

Maybe, Like Holder and Obama, they believe they are above the law, and have made the political decision that their popularity is not in jeopardy.

This looks like politics and not leadership to me.
