Gov. Mitch Daniels had a warning to proponents of naming a female justice to the all male Indiana Supreme Court: he won't be bullied into naming a woman to the court. Quoting Daniels, the Northwest Indiana Times' Dan Carden writes
"Those who are eager to see it would serve their cause better by not making a whole lot more noise, because it would taint the choice," Daniels said. "Beyond some point it would discredit the person I pick if it looked like it was purely political or an appeal for cheap points." . . .
"If I thought anybody — male or female — was going to make decisions based on gender or some other category, that would disqualify them immediately," Daniels said. "Justice must be blind."
Considering the Governor's final choice, his comments are laughable.
