GOP Supreme Court Candidate Compares Gay Sex to Bestiality

A Wisconsin Supreme Court candidate that has been backed by the GOP once wrote about his disdain for the Supreme Court's decision to strike down anti-sodomy laws by saying that doing so was analogous to bestiality, as well as calling Planned Parenthood a "wicked organization" that kills babies and that the NAACP is disgraceful, according to Talking Points Memo.

Brian Hagedorn wrote those things in a blog post on his blog titled "Anno Domini." He was legal counsel to former governor Scott Walker and is running against Lisa Neubauer, a liberal candidate. The Democratic party in Wisconsin believes that is Neubauer wins, the court majority will be flipped in their favor. 

Hagedorn acted as a law firm intern at the age of twenty-seven, which is when he wrote the blog posts. In one, he wrote that the striking down of the sodomy laws in Texas was unconstitutional. He wrote, "The idea that homosexual behavior is different than bestiality as a constitutional matter is unjustifiable” and that there is no right in the Constitution to have sex with "whatever you want." He also wrote about his strong opposition to abortion and that the NAACP is a "partisan hack." 

Members of Hagedorn's campaign said that he wrote those things before "he put on a robe and took an oath" and they said that his views will not affect his decisions as a Supreme Court justice.  Conversely, members of Neubauer's campaign said that Hagedorn's past comments are "wholly disqualifying" and that he has an agenda that is "personal, extreme, and radical." 

Currently, conservatives occupy a majority of seats on the Supreme court, with four out of seven justices are backed by conservatives, so Democrats are hoping that Neubauer wins the seat in the Wisconsin Supreme Court to balance the scales. In my opinion, I don't think that Hagedorn's views have changed and I disagree with his campaign because I believe that his past writings will affect his decision making as a Supreme Court Justice. Hopefully, we won't have to find out.
