Oh Shit, It’s Going to Alito

Pennsylvania mapA Pennsylvania clerk who has been rebuffed multiple times in her quest to singlehandedly appeal the state’s loss in the marriage equality case is at it again. This time, she’s taking her case to the US Supreme Court.

On Top Magazine reports:

A Pennsylvania county clerk on Thursday asked the Supreme Court to stay a federal judge’s ruling striking down the state’s ban on gay marriage. Theresa Santai-Gaffney, the clerk of orphans court and register of wills in Schuylkill County, filed the request after the Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia denied her request to intervene in the case… Santai-Gaffney claims she should be allowed to appeal the decision because it affected her rights and duties as an elected official and left the state’s marriage law in a state of limbo.

And guess who gets the request? Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr. is the justice who overseas the Third Circuit. This may get interesting.
