When President Obama made his announcement in May of 2012 that he (once again) supported gay marriage, he also made it clear that he thought the issue should be left to the states. Obama said in an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts:
Today, according to reports, Obama may continue his evolution on gay marriage and fight to deny California voters the right to settle this issue at the ballot box. NBC's Pete Williams reports that Obama's Justice Department will file a brief arguing that California's constitutional amendment establishing marriage as a union between one man and one woman violates the federal constitution. "Specifics — including the breadth of the administration's argument — remain unknown, although a brief should be filed later Thursday," reports Buzzfeed's Chris Geidner.
