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.
