GOP U.S Candidate calls for impeachment of Iowa Judge for ruling on Marriage Equality!!!
You know I would have never pick Iowa to be the next state for Marriage Equality, we just need the Iowa State Supreme Court to make the same ruling the Polk County District Judge Robert Hanson made. I love these fu*king activist judges. Ok, the nicknames are childish, and immature. Conservative and right-wingers need to grow up.
As soon as Marriage is extended to gay couples in a state the bigots come come like a pack of dogs. Here's this laughable outrage from a Conservative GOP:
A conservative political activist is demanding that the Iowa Legislature impeach Polk County District Judge Robert Hanson, who ruled last month that state’s ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional.
Bill Salier, a Nora Springs farmer and former Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, said Wednesday that he is passing petitions favoring the judge’s impeachment.
..."He’s advancing what he wants to be the law, but he cannot pass law because he is not a representative or a senator or a governor," Salier said. “It’s a malfeasance of his office, and he needs to be removed for it."
Thankfully,Slaier's calls for impeachment is the biggest joke to many in the State legislature like the Democratic Senate Majority leader:
Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal laughed when he heard about the effort. The Council Bluffs Democrat said he wasn’t sure if the Legislature even has the power to impeach a judge. "I'm next to positive it’s never been done," he said.
Gronstal said Salier’s impeachment demand was not an honest attempt to oust Hanson. "Let’s be blunt: The likelihood of that happening is zero, and he knows it, and you know it."
The House majority leader is no fool at all:
"This is a very emotional issue, but we are not interested in politicizing the judicial branch to help the failing presidential campaign of Tom Tancredo."
Justice MH: I am please to announce the state of Iowa is free from bigotry, injustice and discrimination! Let's try to keep it that way.
