House and Senate Leadership Could Petition to Intervene in Marriage Case!


Senate Pro-Temp Joe Scarnati and/or House Speaker Sam Smith could and should follow in the footsteps of Theresa Santai Gaffney, the Schuylkill County Register of Wills, in petitioning to intervene in the Whitewood v. Wolf case in which Judge John Jones declared our Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional.  As members of the Senate and House leadership, they have the authority to ask to intervene.
