Video: Iowa for [acting like a paparazzo chasing Lindsey Lohan]

by Jeremy Hooper

The anti-LGBT, anti-judicious, far-right-connected, very well-financed roustabouts at "Iowa For Mob Rule" "Iowa For Freedom" continue their bullying habits. This video has been posted to IFF's official YouTube site:

(*this is Judge David Baker and Chief Justice Marsha Ternus, two of the three IA Supreme Court judges up for retention)

Here we have a group receiving hundreds of thousands of out-of-state dollars from the National Organization for Marriage, the Campaign For Working Families PAC, and the American Family Association, as well as a supportive bus tour from Tony Perkins and the Family Research Council: And yet it's the sitting duck justices who are being confronted with a Flip cam about their campaign activities?! (*Which have been limited to speeches that merely acknowledge the war being waged against both their careers and their passions for judicial independence).

But you know, this video is actually a fitting metaphor for Iowa For Freedom itself. Their campaign supports knee-jerk reactions on the fly, double standards that exalt faith groups' campaign activities above any and all civil push back, and high court justices who are must answer to "the people" in either their chambers and their vehicles. Bad for parking lots. Bad for a co-equal branch of government.
