Barber Wants Obama Investigated for "High Crimes and Misdemeanors"
There are few Religious Right activists who can match Liberty Counsel's Matt Barber in terms of anti-gay animosity, so I guess it should come as no surprise that he wants to see President Obama impeached ... for extending leave to domestic partners:
In the opinion of Liberty Counsel's Matt Barber, Obama's order to change the 1997 Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to include a 24-hour "leave without pay" benefit to domestic partners represents another abuse of power.
"He has, via unconstitutional executive fiat, unilaterally and arbitrarily disregarded the federal Defense of Marriage Act, known as DOMA, which states that the federal government only recognizes legitimate marriage as between one man and one woman," Barber contends.
But he is hopeful the voting public will send a message to the president.
"After November 2, it's my hope that some gutsy legislators in Congress will begin to look at this and other legally dubious actions by this president to determine if we may have high crimes and misdemeanors here on the part of this despotic man," the Liberty Counsel attorney adds.
