Demeo’s judicial resume includes a brief period as staff attorney for the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), Adjunct Professor at Howard University School of Law, and magistrate judge in DC. She received a presidential nomination to be a judge on the DC Superior Court yet her nomination had been postponed. Sen. Jim DeMint was credited with holding up her nomination due to her "history of very leftist activism” apart from MALDEF.
Did we mention that Demeo is a lesbian? Hence, why the Traditional Values Coalition reportedly sent the following letter to its members:
As an open, radical lesbian, Demeo has openly condemned the effort to amend our Constitution to protect marriage as a one-man, one-woman union. Demeo supports gay marriage, claiming it is a constitutional right. She also claims that LGBT individuals are equal to racial minorities and can claim protection as minorities under our civil rights laws…Whether one agrees with her previous work or whatever her sexual orientation is are both moot points. At the very least she deserves the chance for a confirmation vote rather than permit petty politics to interfere. Mercifully cooler heads have prevailed and the hold on Demeo’s nomination was dropped. Too bad it took an eleven-month delay to reach such a point.
Demeo’s radical lesbianism, anti-marriage, anti-national security views are dangerous to our nation. She should not be confirmed to the DC Superior Court.
