According to the Bay Area Reporter, the lesbian sister of Proposition 8 mastermind Frank Schubert has announced her candidacy for Sacramento County Superior Court judge. Schubert is the President of Orange County’s Schubert Flint Public Affairs.
Schubert acknowledges that his sister, Anne Marie Schubert, is part of a registered domestic partnership and is raising two children with her partner. He says he considers “them and their children to be part of my family, and I love them very much.”
The California Code of Judicial Ethics, which applies to both sitting judges and attorneys running for judicial office, does not allow statements about cases, controversies, or issues that could come before the courts. Citing this code, Anne Marie Schubert has refused requests to comment on the issue of same-sex marriage.
