Black and Gay Mayor Nominated for New Jersey State Supreme Court
Gov. Chris Christie has nominated Bruce A. Harris to serve on the State Supreme Court. But why is this news? Well, Bruce is openly gay, Black and possibly, the third Black person to serve on the State Supreme Court. Plus to add sprinkles to this deal, Bruce will be the first openly LGBT person on board.
I have to say this is a huge deal, in the midst of the gay marriage debate coming in New Jersey. I guess Chris is trying to secure his governorship for the next term. Anywho, I wish Bruce luck on this historic nomination and I hope his Repub background don't cloud his judgment. (Thanks, David for the update)
