Out Lesbian Joins Colorado Supreme Court

Today Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter named out lesbian Monica Marquez to the state Supreme Court.
"It is not because Monica is a Latina or because she is gay," he said. "I chose her because of her analytical ability and her keen intellect." On Wednesday, as Ritter announced that Marquez — currently deputy Colorado attorney general — would become the state's next Supreme Court justice, the Capitol erupted in cheers from her colleagues and family. "I look forward to serving the state of Colorado in this new capacity, and I promise to bring an exceptional work ethic, a collaborative spirit, an open mind and a reverence for the rule of law," Marquez said. Marquez, 41, a native of Grand Junction, attended Stanford University and earned her undergraduate degree in political science in 1991.
Expect the Colorado-based Focus On The Family to start screaming.
