‘Limited government’ is code for ‘unlimited government’

Here we see the “limited government” Republican Party in all its glory, as Alaska Governor Sean Parnell appoints a religious fanatic to the panel that nominates state judges — a fanatic who wants to see Alaskans go to jail for extra-marital sex.

JUNEAU — Gov. Sean Parnell’s appointee for the panel that nominates state judges testified Wednesday that he would like to see Alaskans prosecuted for having sex outside of marriage.

The candidate, Don Haase of Valdez, also admitted under questioning by members of the Senate Judiciary Committee that his official resume failed to disclose his leadership role in Eagle Forum Alaska, which advocates for social conservative issues. He most recently was president of the organization, but resigned when he learned of his nomination, he said.

Haase, picked by Parnell for one of three public seats on the Alaska Judicial Council, said that he wouldn’t let his personal beliefs influence which candidates he’d approve for judgeships.
