Governor Branstad is predicting the Iowa Supreme Court justice who faces a retention vote in 2012 will be criticized for more than just the court’s gay marriage ruling.
Justice David Wiggins was one of the seven justices who joined in that unanimous, 2009 ruling which paved the way for gay marriage in Iowa. Three of those justices who were up for retention in 2010 were voted off the court. Branstad says Wiggins may face a similar fate.
“Especially in light of the fact that he chaired the Judicial Nominating Commission and the way he treated some of the applicants to that — and that was all on videotape — I suspect there’s going to be some people who have grave concerns about the way that he has operated,” Branstad says.
