Rep. Rick Womick (R-Murfreesboro), bashed Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam for “bowing down” to the Supreme Court’s ruling that state bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional. According to the Times Free Press, Haslam stated he doesn’t agree with the ruling but has ordered Tennessee civil employees to comply with the law.
“And where is Tennessee’s leadership…oh that’s right…our Governor bowed down to the five self appointed gods in black robes just minutes after they issued their ‘opinion!’” Womick ranted on his Facebook page. “He changed Tennessee state law and our State Constitution without ever consulting with the General Assembly. [I think it’s time to give serious consideration to impeachment hearings against Gov. Haslam…]”
Lately we’ve come to believe the majority of the GOP do not even begin to understand the Constitution, much less the concept of following the rule of law regardless of one’s in(s)ane personal preferences.
