Confirmation Hearings Begin Today for Kansas Court of Appeals Nominee, a Lawyer with Ties to Christian Right Group

Because Kansas isn’t screwed up enough yet, check out Gov. Sam Brownback‘s latest nominee to the state Court of Appeals, Kathryn Gardner (below):

… Brownback’s latest Court of Appeals appointee, who faces her first confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, lectured and studied at the conservative law group Alliance Defending Freedom.

The Alliance Defending Freedom did not respond to a request for comment, but the group’s website describes it as “an alliance-building legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.” The site says the group advocates and litigates against “radical anti-Christian groups,” spreading what it calls the “myth” of the separation of church and state.

Because what Kansas needs in a position of legal power is someone who thinks separation of church and state is a myth and who likely thinks the Bigotry Map depicts actual bigotry.

If appointed, she would be one step away from the State Supreme Court.
