Philadelphia's Republican governor is making waves with his newly expressed support for employment nondiscrimination protections for LGBT people in his state.
Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Sims wrote a Facebook status update in response to governor Tom Corbett's interview on Friday, in which the Republican governor compared same-sex marriage to incest.
Meanwhile, a state official said that extending marriage benefits to same-sex couples was like 'giving money to people's pets.'
Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane said she "cannot ethically defend the constitutionality of Pennsylvania's version of DOMA. I believe it to be wholly unconstitutional."
