The 15-year-old act, known as DOMA, defines marriage – for federal tax, Social Security and other purposes – as only a union between a man and a woman. In February, the Obama administration announced it would no longer defend the constitutionality of the act.

For $520 an hour, paid with taxpayer funds appropriated from their congressional budget, House Republicans hired Clement – and King & Spalding – to continue the appeal of a decision by a federal judge in Massachusetts, who struck down the act last summer.

Sounds like a great use of the money. I’m glad to see that they’re not letting their commitment to fiscal responsibility get in the way.
