Yay we have marriage equality nationwide. But bigotry is still a cherished American value, so my wife is in depositions today. She is suing our county for illegal hiring discrimination. I may go into more details later; the short story is she applied for a county law enforcement job, and during the application review the manager and staff called her derogatory names and threw her application in the trash. She learned about these charming antics from a whistleblower. Of course they’re good Christians. Just the kind of people we want in law enforcement.
One of the staffers was supposedly a friend, and she had recommended Terry for the job. She joined in the bashing. The one staffer who objected was hounded out of his job. He sued and won. Soon it will be Grant County 0, Litigants 2. I hope you’re proud of protecting these people, Grant County–they still have their jobs, and have not been reprimanded.
