A Federal panel of Judges from the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that California’s Proposition 8 which banned gay and lesbian marriages violated the US Constitution. It also supported the ideas of Judge Vaughan Walker who initially ruled the ban was illegel since it violated the rights of gays and lesbians. Opponents challenged his ruling on grounds that he was biased due to being a gay person.
If we ruled out judges based on their connections, where would that leave Justice Scalia who is a well known supporter of conservative groups? How could Mitt Romney serve as president and sign laws since his heart and soul belong to wealthy and bussinesss people of this land?
