Gov. Schwarzenegger orders attorney general to take steps to stop gay weddings
by Lockyer and Arnold Must Go
Saturday Feb 21st, 2004 9:39 AM
BURLINGAME, California (AP) - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger waded deeper into the debate over same-sex marriages, directing the state attorney general to take immediate legal steps to stop San Francisco from granting marriage licenses to gay couples.

Schwarzenegger told a cheering crowd at the state Republican convention that "in San Francisco, the courts are dropping the ball."

"It's time for the city to stop travelling down this dangerous path of ignoring the rule of law. That's my message to San Francisco," he said Friday night.
A spokeswoman for Lockyer told the Los Angeles Times that the attorney general's office planned to seek a judgment soon declaring the city's action a violation of state law, but said Schwarzenegger had no authority over the elected Democrat.
