bondiblondeAround 4 p.m. this afternoon, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi made it officially clear that she will in fact be fighting the Pareto/Ruvin case in Miami-Dade County as a steward of the state who wishes to see that gay marriage is summarily displaced despite the winds of change blowing the hair out of her blank eyes. We were cruising public records on the case and came across the latest filing, published directly beneath you. Sure, it may seem like it sucks, but it also means it is on. This story is developing and none of the principals can comment yet. We just thought you might like to know that your state is failing you.

 

 

Pareto Bondi Intervene Motion

OH, and here’s Bondi’s press release about the whole thing.

MEMO

Memo: Attorney General’s Office Files Motions to Intervene in Challenges to Voter-Approved Constitutional Amendment Defining Marriage
Date: June 24, 2014
To: Interested media
From: Jenn Meale, Communications Director for the Attorney General’s Office
Re: Motions to Intervene in Challenges to Voter-Approved Constitutional Amendment Defining Marriage

The Office of the Attorney General today filed motions to intervene in two challenges to the voter-approved constitutional amendment defining marriage. This action will ensure that the courts have the benefit of legal arguments defending the constitutional marriage provision approved by Florida voters in 2008. The interventions also further a coordinated response to related challenges pending in courts throughout the state. The cases are as follows: Pareto v. Ruvin, Case No. 2014-1661-CA-01 (11th Judicial Circuit, Miami-Dade County) and Huntsman v. Heavlin, Case No. 2014-CA-0305-K (16th Judicial Circuit, Monroe County).

Bondi Doubles Down On Hateful Crusade Against LGBT Floridians 
 
Tallahassee, FL — After making national news last month by claiming marriage equality would cause “significant public harm,” Attorney General Pam Bondi has doubled down on her bigoted campaign against LGBT Floridians. Bondi has offered to join additional lawsuits — at taxpayer expense — in an effort to obstruct marriage equality. As the Associated Press’s Gary Fineout reported, Pam Bondi seeks to intervene in two lawsuits filed against the Miami-Dade and Monroe County clerks. 
 
 
After the initial backlash to her bigoted comments, Bondi insisted that she was just doing her job. Now it is clear that Bondi is waging an ideologically charged war against LGBT Floridians, going out of her way to waste taxpayer dollars in an effort to stop Floridians from enjoying the same rights as their fellow citizens. Floridians overwhelmingly agree that love is love, and for Bondi to continue to waste taxpayer dollars in an effort to shore up her Tea Party credentials during her reelection campaign is simply unconscionable. Floridians deserve an Attorney General that will fight for them — not a bigoted, self-interested politician like Pam Bondi,” said Florida Democratic Party Political Director Christian Ulvert.
