Judge's Federal Appointment Stalled Because of Commitment Ceremony Attendance

-A Michigan judge whose nomination to the federal bench is stalled over her appearance at a lesbian commitment ceremony in Massachusetts says she attended as a friend, not to give legal sanction. The nomination of Michigan Court of Appeals Judge Janet T. Neff to be a U.S. District Court judge is on hold because Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., is not satisfied with her response to questions about her views on same-sex marriage, a spokesman for the senator said Thursday.

WTF?! So just HAVING GAY FRIENDS who live 1000 fucking miles away in MASSACHUSETTS is enough to get you barred from public office by Republican hacks?
