Virginia GOP Furious Over Democratic Attorney General’s Same-Sex Marriage ‘Dictatorship’
The VA GOP is upset that the 14th Amendment exists:
The Washington Post reported that Republicans in the state immediately set about trying to find ways to block Herring’s effort to give the state’s LGBT couples the same rights as heterosexual couples.
Herring said at a press conference on Thursday that his duty is to uphold the U.S. Constitution first and foremost.
“The Supreme Court is clear: The United States Constitution is the law of the land, the supreme law of the land,” he said. “I believe the freedom to marry is a fundamental right, and I intend to ensure that Virginia is on the right side of history and the right side of the law.”
Anti-LGBT Republicans fumed that Herring is misusing his office and that he is behaving in an “activist” manner. The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) called for the Democrat’s impeachment on grounds of “malfeasance” and “neglect of duty.”
“I don’t know what the difference between a dictatorship and this is,” complained Republican state Sen. Richard Black.
