Iowa GOP Targets Another Judge over Gay Marriage

Voters urged to bounce justice who ruled restrictions against same-sex marriage unconstitutional.


The Republican Party of Iowa on Wednesday called on voters in the state to oust Iowa Supreme Court Justice David Wiggins in the November elections.

Wiggins and six other justices unanimously ruled in 2009 that limiting marriage to the union of one man and one woman was unconstitutional. Following the ruling, conservatives launched a campaign to oust all the justices, who face a retention vote in Iowa every eight years. Justices Marsha Ternus, David Baker and Michael Streit were voted out in 2010.
