STATEMENT FROM VICTORIA COBB, PRESIDENT OF THE FAMILY FOUNDATION OF VIRGINIA, REGARDING ATTORNEY GENERAL'S DECISION TO NOT DEFEND CONSTITUTION

          "The decision by the Attorney General is not surprising, but it is disappointing and frightening.  It's disappointing that he wouldn't be clear about his intentions on this issue while campaigning for the office.  More importantly, it's frightening that politicians like the Attorney General feel that they can pick and choose which aspects of the Constitution they deem worth to defend and apply.  Whether one agrees with the marriage amendment or not, the idea that over a million Virginia citizens can be left defenseless by the Attorney General after legally voting for an amendment that he himself supported is chilling."
