The Milton Democrat, who served as the Clinton administration's chief civil rights attorney before becoming general counsel for Coca-Cola, has deposited $100,000 of his own money into his newly opened campaign account. He also has raised an additional $21,700 from dozens of individual donors.
Reilly is reputed to have $2 million, but if Deval takes some positions, he'll have access to money quick, as Democrats are growing tired of candidates that want to have it both ways (from The Globe
WELCOME, Tom Reilly, to the circle of politicians who long to be for and against the tough ones.
The state attorney general says his job is to defend the law of the land -- whatever that law is. That puts him behind the ruling by the Supreme Judicial Court to authorize same-sex marriage, even though he personally believes marriage is between a man and a woman. It also puts him behind a 1913 statute that banned marriages in Massachusetts, if such unions were not recognized by other states.
Reilly also says he will oppose any efforts to ban same-sex marriages. Why? "Once rights are given, they should not be taken away," he states. He insists that it is not "news" because he testified against a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in 2002. At the same time, he won't take a specific position on whether a proposed constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, now before the Legislature, should go on the ballot. That's not his job to decide, he says - that's the Legislature's, and "I won't tell the Legislature what to do."
There's a thing called "leading" -- you might want to look into it -- leave the flip-flopping to Romney.
