From Herald columnist Fred Grimm, who questions Senator Marco Rubio's logic
Marco Rubio killed the nomination of William Thomas to the federal judiciary last week. Then he tried to murder the judge’s reputation.
His office raised the specter of the Miami-Dade circuit judge’s “judicial temperament.” Well, you know what that means.
Rubio’s flack, Brooke Sammon, told the Daily Business Review Thursday that the senator has blocked confirmation hearings for Judge Thomas, who is openly gay, because the senator has “questions about his judicial temperament and his willingness to impose appropriate criminal sentences.”
