During Kamala Harris' victory party last night at the Delancey Streey Foundation in South Beach, where she celebrated a narrow win against Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley in the Attorney General's race, she promised some sort of surprise. That apparent surprise, at least for Californians outside the Bay Area, was the announcement that she will not defend Proposition 8, the same-sex marriage ban.
When the San Francisco District Attorney joins her entourage of democrats to Sacramento next year, she said she "will not defend Proposition 8."
The hearing on whether Prop 8 should be struck down will be televised on Dec. 6 on C-SPAN.
