Vitter Alone In Silence Over Justice Who Refuses To Marry Biracial Couple

We’ve heard from the governor and senior senator in Louisiana and from the White House responding to the justice of the peace who refuses to marry biracial couples, but the state’s junior senator, David Vitter, has stayed conspicuously silent.

Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) wants Keith Bardwell, justice of the peace in Tangipahoa Parish, fired for his actions. The same is true for Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA).

We checked in with Vitter’s office, and he hasn’t issued any public statements about the matter.

We’ll update you if we get a response.
