Give it arrest: TN 'marriage protector' busted

by Jeremy Hooper

Jeff-MillerIn 1996, former Tennessee state senator Jeff Miller defrauded equality when he successfully pushed the state to adopt a Defense of Marriage Act. In 2005, he ripped off equal protection when he successfully sponsored a state marriage amendment.

Today there is growing evidence that karma is a bitchy gay:

Former State Sen. Jeff Miller (R-Cleveland), the man who sponsored the constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, has been arrested by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) for overbilling Bradley County as their delinquent tax attorney.
...
A press release from the TBI says that Miller, 46, was indicted on one count of Official Misconduct, one count of Conspiracy to Commit Official Misconduct and one count of Conspiracy to Commit Aggravated Perjury.

Miller was booked along with his female secretary, both on a $10,000 bond. So see, he got exactly what he wanted: A bond shared between one man and one woman.

For the record Mr. Miller was acquitted of the “politically” driven charges. Mr. Miller comes from a political family. The “opposition” drove the unsubstantiated accusations knowing there wasn’t a prayer of conviction. Politics = a world of enemies. .
