Openly gay judicial nominee Tracy Thorne-Begland who currently serves as a well-respected deputy prosecutor, has been targeted by legislators and conservative groups simply because he is gay. Tracy Thorne-Begland is currently a deputy prosecutor in Richmond.
From the Washington Post:
Thorne-Begland, the deputy commonwealth attorney for Richmond, has been nominated to serve as a judge for the city’s 13th General District Court.
On Friday, the Family Foundation of Virginia issued a statement opposing his appointment, arguing that his public work on behalf of gay rights makes him unsuitable for the impartial role of judge.
