Mike Stark catches David Vitter and asks him if he has any comment on the Louisiana Judge who refused to marry an interracial couple
Vitter you are dead wrong when you say "I don't think that's the case"
I had been wondering if Vitter would comment after both Bobby Jindal and Mary Landreau had called for the ouster of Keith Bardwell (the Archie Bunker Judge).
The governor in his statement charged the judge's action was discriminatory and said it constituted a "violation of constitutional rights and federal and state law."
"Disciplinary action should be taken immediately — including the revoking of his license," Jindal added.
Landrieu concurred with the governor. "Not only does his decision directly contradict Supreme Court rulings, it is an example of the ugly bigotry that divided our country for too long," she explained.
Yeah Vitter - you are the only senior member of Louisiana politics who has not issued a statement here. I guess you are afraid an interracial child might grow up to become U.S. Senator or better yet President.
Vitter cannot say that he has not had plenty of opportunity to comment and issue and denouncement of the miscreant aka Keith Bardwell. TPM says they tried to contact Vitter's office for a statement and received none.
Feel free to call Vitter's office and bombard him with calls asking if he would like to make a statement. I'm sure he won't because he's defiantly refused to do so when pressed by several media outlets.
Thank Mike Stark, for his great work, by visiting his website and supporting his efforts.
