Conway owed voters defense, despite personal views

We take Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway at his word when he says he thinks Kentucky's ban on same-sex marriage is discriminatory. He says he believes the state's constitutional amendment forbidding recognition of such unions will be overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, which heard arguments on the matter last week. He may well be right.

But we don't think his personal views on the subject, no matter how sincere, excuse him from refusing to defend the law on the state's behalf in his capacity as attorney general.
