Well-Connected White Guy Who Hates Gay Marriage Already Has a Leg Up in CA Governor’s Race

“John C. Eastman, seeking the Republican nomination for California attorney general, could become a new face in the fight to block same-sex marriage. His candidacy threatens to further shrink the GOP’s dwindling market share among California voters, even as he seeks to use the campaign apparatus that won the epic battle to ban same-sex marriage in 2008. Eastman has surrounded himself with prominent players from the Proposition 8 campaign. His campaign firm, Schubert Flint Public Affairs, ran the Yes-on-8 campaign. Several of his donors were major contributors to the effort. And a conservative Christian group called National Organization for Marriage, based in New Jersey, already playing in the GOP primary for the U.S. Senate here, proclaimed Eastman’s candidacy to be of prime interest. ‘We view this race as one of the most important races in the country,’ said Brian Brown.” Let this be a lesson to all privileged white men: Never let such stumbling blocks like clerking for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas or founding a think tank like the Center for Constitutional Jurisprudence get in the way of your dreams.

    It’s a pity that the role of Attorney General is so poltical. In Ireland the Attorney General is appointed by the Taoiseach (Prime Minister) and is therefore very apolitical. People elect politicians to represent them. Attorney Generals should just enforce the law as it is and clarify ambiguities in the law.

    The AG, the governor, the legislature, the courts…all have been proven to have no say in the matter. It’s an issue for the ballot now.

    @ Paschal: Hey Einstein, the federal attorney general of the US is appointed as well. Eastman is a state attorney general candidate. I hope he fails, hard.
