Neither did.

Meg Whitman said Jerry Brown "needs to defend that lawsuit," to try to uphold the state's gay marriage ban.

Brown said "I'm following the precedent of a prior attorney general," and said he believes Proposition 8 violates the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Brown called Proposition 8 "so fundamentally wrong."
