{ Out of Control Legislators and their Amicus Brief }

Here is a link to the Amicus brief that 44 members of the California State Legislature joined, asking the state Supreme Court to strike down Prop 8. You will find these names on page 1. Again, I ask, since when is it the job of our elected officials to get involved in this? The voters have voted. These legislators also got to cast their vote, now they need to get back to work and do what they were elected to do…whatever that is. How can they sign a brief like this when they also represent constituents who voted Yes on Prop 8? I’m going to do some research and see what I can find out about how we handle this. But I suspect that some phone calls and letters to these people are in order. And P.S. we definitely shouldn’t be voting for them again.
