Texas state Rep. Tony Tinderholt has filed a hilarious complaint with the State Commission of Judicial Conduct over a ruling which allowed a lesbian couple together over 30 years to marry.
In filing the complaint, Tinderholt admits that he’s not a lawyer, although you didn’t need him to share that info to know that. He not only says that the judge didn’t notify the attorney general (he did) but Tinderholt names the WRONG judge.
From Raw Story:
Tinderholt, 44, a former member of the U.S. Air Force and Army, wrote out a two-paragraph complaint to the State Commission on Judicial Conduct stating that Judge Wahlberg failed to give notice to the State Attorney General’s office when lifting a stay on the two women’s marriage.
“This judge deliberately violated statutory law, and this is unacceptable,” Tinderholt wrote.
However it was Probate Judge Guy Herman, not Wahlberg, who ruled the same-sex marriage ban was unconstitutional. Additionally, the State Attorney General’s office did receive notice of the ruling on Jan. 23 and chose to “not to seek direct involvement.”
According to attorney Brian T. Thompson who took part in the case involving the two women, Tinderholt’s complaint won’t hold up against either of the judges.
“It’s a shame that someone who’s taken on the responsibility of writing our laws has so much misunderstanding of the law,” Thompson said.
Clearly a standard-bearer for the sanctity of marriage, Tinderholt is currently in his 5th marriage – a former Dallas Cowboy cheerleader.
Says it all, doesn’t it?
