Chief justice's lesbian cousin will attend Prop. 8 hearing

SAN FRANCISCO--Jean Podrasky, 48, a lesbian who wants to marry her partner, will be at Tuesday’s U.S. Supreme Court hearing on Proposition 8 in seating reserved for family members and guests of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.


Podrasky lives in San Francisco and usually sees Roberts only on family occasions. His mother is her godmother, whom she adores. She said Roberts knows she is gay and introduced her along with other relatives during his Senate confirmation hearing. She hopes he will meet her partner of four years, Grace Fasano, during their Washington visit. The couple flew to Washington on Sunday.

“He is a smart man,” she said. “He is a good man. I believe he sees where the tide is going. I do trust him. I absolutely trust that he will go in a good direction.”


She said she does not know whether having a lesbian family member would influence Roberts’ thinking. “Everybody knows somebody” who is gay, she said. “It probably impacts everybody.”

2. She says, "He's a smart man." 'He's a good man."

 

I agree with the first sentence. Other than that, with all due respect to the court, he's a piece of shit.
