Hate Groups Sue Feds Over DOMA

The anti-gay Judicial Watch and the Family Research Council have filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice, demanding that the DOJ release all internal documents and emails relating to the decision to stop defending DOMA. Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton:

“You know, they made this decision, and based on the timing of certain court filings it looks like it was made in concert with the homosexual activists and those who are seeking to redefine marriage. We just want to figure out what’s going on. And our view, generally, is that this Justice Department is an arm of the political left and the activist groups and I suspect the reason we can’t get documents about the decision-making and their communications with some of the notorious folks involved in this gay marriage debate means they have something to hide.”

Tony Perkins: “We have serious concerns that the Justice Department wants to hide evidence that it was doing the bidding of campaign donors and homosexual activists from whom Obama will need assistance for his reelection.”
