"GOP hires California expert for NC same-sex marriage fight" - Guess who?

According to the Charlotte Observer, Republican leaders in the North Carolina legislature apparently will make good Thursday on their pledge to fight the expected go-ahead for same-sex marriages in the state.

House Speaker Thom Tillis and Senate President Phil Berger reportedly have hired a conservative California legal expert to lead the effort.

John Eastman, a former Republican candidate for attorney general in California, is the former dean of the Chapman University School of Law in Orange, Calif. He is also chairman of the board of the National Organization for Marriage.

The Observer doesn't mention that Eastman has lost every marriage case that he has been involved in including the peripheral and preposterous NOM v. IRS. It also fails to mention that his most notable achievement at Chapman was getting his buddy Torture-Memo-Writer John Yoo on the payroll.
