Frank Schubert and his sister

Remember Frank Schubert, the whiz behind the pro Prop8 and Question 1 campaigns? You know, the consultant for hate who said,
"However, I represent those who read the Bible and believe in God." Some people found that incredibly offensive. At one point, some people were hissing.
yeah, that one.

his sister is a lesbian in a partnered relationship, running for judge. Reported in the Bay Area Reporter:
The lesbian sister of Proposition 8 mastermind Frank Schubert has announced her candidacy for Sacramento County Superior Court judge.

At her campaign Web site, Anne Marie Schubert, a deputy district attorney for Sacramento County, promotes herself as a law and order and victim's rights candidate with several endorsements from local law enforcement organizations......

Frank Schubert told the Bay Area Reporter the two women are in a registered domestic partnership.

"She and Julie are in a domestic partnership, and they have two wonderful children," Frank Schubert said.

Asked if he considered the children and Greenberg to be a part of his family, Frank Schubert replied, "Of course I consider them and their children to be part of my family, and I love them very much."....
He also endorses her campaighn.

So, let's get this straight, so to speak. This awful person attacks the rights of people LIKE HIS SISTER to have a marriage and says he loves her very much. Some brotherly love. No comment from the would-be judge, either. OF course she's a Republican.GIve that woman the Mary Cheney award for cognitive dissonance. You cannot make this stuff up.

Imagine what Christmas is like around THEIR family.

As one blogger suggests,
It also forces one other question: can you be as anti-gay marriage as Frank Schubert is, and still believe that LGBT people, like his sister Anne Marie, can be great mothers, judges, and members of society? Because it sure seems like, in this case, Schubert is talking out of both sides of his mouth.
