NY gov blocks some federal judges from officiating at weddings — because they might be Trump nominees
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has vetoed a non-controversial 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. © Drew Angerer Image: New York Governor Andrew Cuomo speaks during a press conference at his Midtown Manhattan office. "I cannot in good conscience support legislation that would authorize such actions by federal judges who are appointed by this...

This is getting beyond TDS/TAD and is devolving into school yard "you can't play with us" bullshit.

"President Trump does not embody who we are as New Yorkers," the Democratic governor added on 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 Assembly are under Democratic control.
Currently, New York law permits all state judges in their official capacity to preside over wedding ceremonies, although only certain federal judges — like those in the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals and those at each of the state's federal district courts — are eligible to preside over weddings. This bill would have expanded the wedding authority to all federal judges, largely those from outside of New York.
Trump has now had nearly 190 federal judges confirmed through his first term, including one in every four circuit court judges.
The White House. Cuomo and Krueger did not immediately respond to requests for comment from NBC News.

Cuomo is a hate-filled animal who never should have been elected Governor. There are too many of these types among us. Why don't the rest of us just treat democrats the same way.

Hypocritical to say the least.

Cuomo is not showing "diversity, tolerance, or inclusion" with his veto. The very things he accused Trump of.

Be funny as hell if Democrats in New York overrode Cuomo's veto!

This is so irrational and bizarre, it doesn’t even qualify as petty. Was he drunk when he vetoed this bill?

Is he going to refuse Federal money because Trump signed the apportions bill?

Oh, hell no.

When has any politician turned down money?
