Governor Napolitano opposes the gay marriage referendum saying that its "unnecessary." She also says that she believes that marriage is between a man and a woman, but she doesn't think that the amendment is needed because the courts have upheld the current marriage statute. The question is if she does support the traditional view of marriage, why is she against strengthening the current law against future judicial activism?
Clearly, she has some very specific views on necessity. An amendment on gay marriage is not necessary, but $1 billion more to the universities in a down economy is. A state ban on partial birth abortion is not necessary, but traffic cameras that generate revenue are. How come her necessities always seem to cost a lot of money?
