Lawyers for California Gov. Jerry Brown are accusing the backers of the state’s same-sex marriage ban of engaging in a thinly veiled “witch hunt.”
Prop. 8 supporters argue that Judge Vaughn Walker had a potential conflict because he has been in a relationship with the same man for a decade and might want to get hitched himself.
The sponsors of California’s same-sex marriage ban say the recent disclosure by the federal judge who struck down Proposition 8 that he is in a long-term relationship with another man has given them new grounds to appeal.
