February 26 2011 -

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bob Corker, R-Tenn., today expressed his support for the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and raised strong concerns about the Obama administration’s announcement Thursday that it would no longer defend the constitutionality of the law’s definition of marriage in court.

“The Defense of Marriage Act has long been the law of the land, and it is a law that I support,” said Corker. “I have strong concerns that this administration appears to be allowing politics to undermine its responsibility to defend established law.”
