CORRECTION: Earlier today we posted that Bernie Sanders did not comment directly on Pete’s historic campaign ending. Sanders did indeed comment on Twitter and tried to entice Buttigieg’s supporters to join his campaign. All in the same post.

Amy Klobuchar Voted For Donald Trump Anti-LGBT Judge Appointment

Amy Klobuchar Voted For Donald Trump Anti-LGBT Judge Appointment

It’s come to light that Democratic Presidential nominee hopeful Amy Klobuchar in 2018 voted to confirm David Ryan Stras to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, despite his strong opposition to LGBT rights and comments deriding a landmark ruling striking down anti-sodomy laws.

In 2008, Stras critiqued the Supreme Court for inappropriately addressing “homosexual rights” and expressed skepticism about the core holding of Lawrence v. Texas, the Supreme Court’s 2003 ruling that struck down Texas’s sodomy law as an unconstitutional deprivation of liberty,”

Stras served on the Minnesota Supreme Court in Klobuchar’s home state, were he supported the ruling allowing an anti- same-sex marriage amendment to appear on the ballot even with a misleading title.

A spokesperson for Klobuchar’s campaign told the Washington Blade that the senator suggested other candidates to the White House for the appeals court seat, but defended her vote to confirm.

“Her vote was based on the reality that given the choices, on balance she thought he was better than the other candidates who would have been nominated from other states.

Against “homosexual rights”, same-sex marriage and wants to bring back sodomy laws. Just how much worse could the other candidates be Amy?
