Keep this homophobe off the federal courts

UPDATE:  The guy was confirmed.  The vote hasn’t been posted yet, but the vote results on the cloture motion that allowed the vote are here.

The U.S. Senate votes TUESDAY on whether Judge Leslie Southwick, the Mississippi judge who signed an opinion that said being gay was an acceptable reason to have your children taken away, will have a lifetime appointment to the Federal bench.

Please call your Senators right away and make sure they don’t confirm this man. Tuesday’s vote is the only thing standing in the way of Bush’s appointment.

Call your senators and make sure they “vote NO on cloture,” to stop the nomination of Judge Leslie Southwick because of his track record of biased decisions. You can call the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for each Senator’s office.  If you don’t know who your senators are, give the switchboard operator your zip code and they’ll connect you.
