Judicial Appointments Of Homosexuals Surge
Is this the new affirmative action? Great. I’m sure this will make our legal system fair.
Check it out:
President Obama has a pen, a phone and apparently a list of activist homosexual judges ready to appoint to the federal bench who will work to implement his agenda regardless of what Congress or voters decide.
Two of those judges garnered U.S. Senate confirmation on Thursday. Darrin Gayles to the U.S. District Court for Southern District of Florida was confirmed by a vote of 98-0 while Staci Yandle will be seated on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois by a vote of 52-44.
Gayles, a 48-year-old Florida circuit-court judge, becomes the nation’s first openly homosexual black man to be confirmed to the federal bench.
Yandle, 53, an attorney in private practice in Illinois, will become the second black lesbian federal judge and the first in two decades.
“Never before in the course of the history of our state has there been an Article III federal judge who is openly a member of the LGBT community,” Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said ahead of Yandle’s vote. Durbin said Yandle’s confirmation marks “another important milestone in America’s journey toward equality of opportunity.”
The appointments come just a week before the June 26 one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling that struck down California’s voter-approved ban on gay marriage, known as Prop 8.
