"I put my hand on a Bible. I raised my other hand, and I swore to uphold the Constitution of the state of Florida. The voters by over 60 percent six years ago put this in our Constitution. People always talk about personal views, it has to do with an Attorney General doing her job. It is my job. I have a lot of gay friends, I can tell you I sat in a church and took pictures when one of my friends adopted two little boys from Russia before you could adopt legally here in Florida. I took the pictures at the baptism."

-- Florida Republican Attorney General Pam Bondi, claiming in a recent interview that even though she's choosing to defend marriage discrimination in the Sunshine State, she's not actually anti-gay because she has gay friends.
