In a column that ran in the Detroit Free Press on Monday morning, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette laid out a weak and hypocritical argument regarding his opposition to marriage equality in Michigan.
The state of Florida cancelled the drivers' licenses of a gay couple after they married in New York and hyphenated their last name. Even though it's their new legal name, the state is refusing to recognize it, so they've sued.
The Supreme Court's Schuette and Shelby decisions send a disturbing signal that ensuring unimpeded minority access to the processes that decide minority interests is not worthy of federal judicial intervention.
It is clear that Attorney General Bill Schuette has built his image around fighting for Michigan and is a very vocal advocate of states' rights. But at some point someone has to point out his inconsistencies when it comes to particular issues.
