RICHMOND Circuit Court judges have appointed an openly gay prosecutor to the bench just a month after the General Assembly rejected his nomination.
Tracy Thorne-Beglands appointment to the city District Court judgeship is temporary, lasting only until the next General Assembly session.
The move by the Circuit Court is likely to revive the emotional debate over gay judges that consumed the legislature on the last day of session. It infuriated Del. Robert G. Marshall (R-Prince William), who along with the Family Foundation of Virginia helped convince the General Assembly that Thorne-Begland was unfit for the bench.
I think its highly imprudent and arrogant on their part, said Marshall. I hope Virginia understands whats going on here: Theyre contesting the authority of the General Assembly here. . . . This is an act of defiance on their part. When appointed officials get in fights with elected officials, they invariably lose.
The court did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Guess he’ll wear a Pink Robe instead of a Black one.
How is it that judges get to appoint other judges?
How does that work?
Gay judge? Always glad to see a happy judiciary.
It’s not about his gayness...
It’s about his lying to get into the military then announcing his gayness.
Also, he thinks he’s “married” but our state doesn’t recognize gay “marriage” so he’s in conflict with a statute as a sitting magistrate.
If you hadn’t noticed yet-—our legal system doesn’t care about Rule of Law. It is all about Rule of man—arbitrary unconstitutional laws.
We need to reclaim our judicial system. Just Law comes from the word, Justice—which is a Virtue. Sodomy has always been a Vice. To promote Vice by force of law is Unjust Law.
Those two men are extremely evil, Satanic men. They can not take the oath to be a judge.
They are allowed to make a temporary appointment to fill a vacancy until the Legislature gets back into session.
