"Delegate Robert G. Marshall (R) has strongly campaigned against Thorne-Begland and has even called him 'an aggressive activist for the pro-homosexual agenda.'"

With a statement that stupid, the (R) designation was unnecessary.

"Can this candidate swear the required oath to support our state’s constitution if he has already indicated by his past actions that he does not support that section of our Constitution barring same-sex legal relationships?" Marshall asked. "While our judges and judicial candidates certainly have a right to free speech, they do not have the right to disregard the Virginia Constitution."

Any bets how many days before he violates his oath, just like he did in the Navy?

Crap, most of the judges around here are all screwed up. Matter of fact, almost all judges are crooked. Look at the 9th Court of Appeals in Californicate.

No-show nothead is correct CI, this is not about black anything. It is about lowering the ethical standards of justice so liars can be judges in Virginia.

This judge is a known liar yet he is appointed sit on the bench and judge other criminals while upholding the state constitution?????

Good luck with that.

You can get everyone started and kill your black half so people will not have to keep up one stupid crazy indian. Are you going to kill your girlfriend, the black goat you keep tied up out in your back yard? Remember the last time you were caught poking your black goat you ended up in jail and became everyone's girlfriend! After that experience you said it was a year before you could hear yourself fart. Do you miss the fellows that much that you would risk jail again? That must be real love!

This isn't about equality in marriage. It is about dropping standards. Perhaps honesty and justice are not important to you as you are a victicrat, but they are to me.

He is a proven/admitted liar, so how can we trust him to be the voice of justice in Virginia?

I don't see it happening.

Unlike you no-show, the only time I appear before the bench is when I have had to arrest someone, generally a victicrat like you.

Victicrats like you are a drain on society. They are never responsible for their actions, and always blame evil white people for their continuous failures in life.

You are too dumb to learn, too stupid to pity, too big of a coward to do anything about it!
