Better Votes Yesterday

by Jeremy Hooper

201006090829You know that "Better Courts Now" initiative in the San Diego area? The one meant to replace judge's gavels with "Yes on Prop 8" signs?

Yea, well: It bit it, big time:

Four incumbent judges were headed to easy victories over a slate of challengers who were backed by a group of religious and social conservatives.
...
The four challengers ran as a slate backed by Better Courts Now, a group formed by pastors and supported by foes of same-sex marriage and abortion rights. It said it wanted to unify the “moral vote” and promote judges who would reflect their values.

So using the California conservative community's own post-Prop 8 standard: THE VOTERS HAVE SPOKEN! GIVE UP YOUR CAUSE NOW!
