Many Virginians are perplexed by Attorney General Mark Herring’s decision to join the plaintiffs in a same-sex marriage suit brought against the state.

The great concern with AG Herring’s actions is his blatant disregard for the voters of Virginia, not to mention his oath of office. In 2006 Virginians voted 57 % to pass the amendment to the state’s constitution defining marriage as a heterosexual institution. Those Virginians who do not share Mr. Herring’s ‘progressive’ sentiments feel a deep-rooted sense of betrayal by one of the highest officeholders in the Commonwealth.
