Iowa GOP Wingnut Bob Vander Plaats Calls on the Four Remaining Supreme Court Judges to Resign



Iowa GOP wingnut Bob Vander Plaats, one of the top bigots responsible for the successful campaign to oust three pro-equality judges from the Supreme Court in the last election, calls on the remaining four judges to resign.

"If all seven would have been on the ballot, all seven would have been voted off," said Vander Plaats

  1. Bob Vander Plaats needs to resign from spewing all his hate. There are a lot of people who would prefer not to ever hear from him again yet he doesn't shut up. And why is his opinion such a big deal??

  2. Bless his little ole heart. He's finally found his reason for living.

    I'm sure that Dutch people world-wide are cringing at the sight of a good Dutch name being associated with such bigotry and anti-gay animus.

  4. He can call on judges to resign till he's blue in the face, but it won't change the outcome of the decision. He also--surprise surprise--doesn't offer any rational argument for why their decision was wrong. Sorry, Bigot Bob, equality wins this round.

  5. It is terrifying that what is supposed to be an independent judiciary can be threatened and controlled by an ignorant and rabid mob led by hateful bigots. I don't care what these people think, if they believe that a judiciary is supposed to be responsible to the will of the people, or at least a small and angry minority of the electorate, they are clearly completely ignorant of our constitution and political process.

  7. @JNAVIANCE - Well, then the process of putting judges up for election is completely ignorant of our constitution and political process. And yet it exists in many states. Sorry to play devil's advocate on that - because I believe it is *antithetical* to our constitution and political process. It should be changed, but that's up to Iowans - and would be an uphill battle I'm sure.

  8. Well of course he's calling on them to resign. He already knows that the national anti-gay forces aren't going to care enough about the issue in the next election to pony up the fortune he spent ousting the first set of judges.

    No way is he getting a repeat.
