Run Christian conservatives, Lesbian recommended for US Attorney

The Senate Judiciary Committee today (Thursday, May 27) recommended the nomination of openly gay Laura Duffy as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of California. If confirmed by the full Senate, she would become the second openly lesbian or gay U.S. attorney. Jenny Durkan, the first, was confirmed in September as U.S. attorney for the Western District of Washington.
Duffy, nominated by President Obama on February 24, has worked in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California since 1997, serving as Deputy Chief, General Crimes Section and Assistant U.S. Attorney – Narcotics Enforcement Section. Prior to that, she spent four years in the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice and two years in law clerkships, for a private firm and for the Public Defender’s Office of Douglas County, Nebraska.
