Christie: Gay Supreme Court Nominee Will Recuse Himself On Marriage Cases
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says that openly gay state Supreme Court nominee Bruce Harris has promised to recuse himself from any cases regarding same-sex marriage.
Bruce Harris wrote to state several state senators asking for their support of a same-sex marriage bill being heard by the Senate in late 2009. Christie, a Republican who supports civil unions but opposes calling it marriage, says Harris volunteered the information to him.RELATED: As you may know, anti-gay groups are contending that Judge Vaughn Walker should have recused himself from the Prop 8 case over his sexuality.
