Santorum: Ousting Pro-Equality Judge Could Reverse Iowa’s Marriage Equality Law

Here’s another reason we’re glad Rick Santorum didn’t make it to the White House: He’s not so clear on the whole judicial process.The failed presidential candidate suggested at a recent rally that voting out Iowa Supreme Court Justice David Wiggins could lead to reversing the decision Wiggins was a part of that lead to marriage equality in the state.

“Now you have an opportunity to tip the balance with a fourth justice and an opportunity to even reverse this horrific decision,” said Santorum, speaking at a “No Wiggins” bus tour stop. (Yep, they have a bus tour just to oust this one judge based on one decision that has zero impact on their lives.)   .

However, as On Top magazine points out, there’s currently no case challenging the Iowa Supreme Court’s 2009 decision— and 56% of Iowans oppose an amendment banning gay marriage.

But hey, dream big, Rick!

Then again, we shouldn’t be so glib: These mouthbreathers already managed to unseat three of the judges who were part of that unanimous Supreme Court decision.

Below, check out the “No Wiggins” ad that was launched last week.

      Voting on judges is a ridiculous concept. Their decisions are supposed to be based on the Constitution and the constitutions and laws of their respective areas, not whether or not they’re going to be reelected.

      Santorum is a truly disturbed individual. His obsession with gays is bizarre at best.
      I don’t think I’ve ever heard him deliver a speech where he doesn’t center it around ” getting those gehys”
      Everything he says and does is about gay men.
      Some guy must have done a real number on him.
      My advice to Santorum is – get over it. You’ve lost so many times. Your own state didnt want you. The country didn’t want you. Hell, even your wife and family look bored with you.

      Maybe we just need to start Googling Santorum again?
