Supreme Court Judges Kicked out!
DES MOINES, Iowa, Thanks to the bigots at The National Organization for Marriage, Three good justices are out of a job. Chief Justice Marsha Ternus and Justices David Baker and Michael Streit, were all voted out this election cycle. The retention vote law was adopted in 1962, since its enactment no justice has been voted out. The idea that three perfectly capable justices could be kicked out over an annmus vote on same sex marriage is very sad. Just imagine if popular opinion controlled the way the judiciary rules. The idea just makes the whole idea of checks and balances seem so imposable. No judge should feel vulnerable for upholding the constitution. Just imagine the repeal of anti-misogyny laws being put to a popular vote, marriage would still be segregated racially. A scary thought indeed! Thank you NOM for messing with the very foundation that this county rests upon!
