How about some top-tier pettiness?...

N.Y. Gov. Cuomo blocks some federal judges from officiating at weddings — because they might be Trump nominees

Quote:
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has vetoed a noncontroversial bipartisan bill that would have allowed all federal judges to officiate weddings in the state because some might have been nominated to the bench by President Donald Trump.

"I cannot in good conscience support legislation that would authorize such actions by federal judges who are appointed by this federal administration," Cuomo's veto message stated.

"President Trump does not embody who we are as New Yorkers," the Democratic governor added Friday. "The cornerstones that built our great state are diversity, tolerance and inclusion. Based on these reasons, I must veto this bill."

The legislation, sponsored by Democratic state Sen. Liz Krueger, passed the state Senate by a 61-to-1 vote. It passed the state Assembly by a 144-to-2 tally. Both the state Senate and the Assembly are under Democratic control.

I assume even in NY there must be an override provision. With a total of 3 dissenters in both House and Senate this will get overridden, but with liberals you never know.

"The cornerstones that built our great state are diversity, tolerance and inclusion. Based on these reasons, I must veto this bill."

You would think the good governor would look up the meaning of those words. He should practice tolerance of diverse ideas, and include those judges in his acceptance of the very motto he defends.
