Pam Bondi Not Sure What Her Next Move on Gay Marriage Is
While Attorney General Pam Bondi is really good at ending her own marriage, she isn't sure what she's going to do next to try and end gay marriage in Florida.
Bondi tried to keep a low profile during today's inauguration festivities, but she couldn't skip her own swearing in and remained vague about the subject.
Bondi still has an appeal of Judge Robert Hinkle's decision reversing Florida's gay marriage ban pending in the 11th circuit court of appeals.
"My solicitor general is looking at it and I wish everyone the best right now who has been married," she replied when asked by the Tampa Bay Times about whether she plans to continue seeking the appeal. "I guess more couples today are getting married and I wish them the best. All we've ever really wanted is uniformity."
That "all we wanted was uniformity" bit being patently untrue, but OK.
When asked follow up questions, Bondi kept referring that her solicitor, Alan Winsor, was looking at it.
Very few high-level elected Republicans in the state have said much at all about gay marriages proceeding in the state, and none have publicly called on Bondi to keep fighting to reinstate the ban.
Maybe Bondi and the rest of the state's GOP infrastructure is ready to stop fighting and leave the gay marriage battle behind.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court is scheduled to consider whether or not to decide cases that could have an affect on gay marriage nationwide this Friday.
