Snapshots from Home

UD’s favorite exchange from yesterday’s Biden impeachment inquiry featured her polygamy-defending GWU colleague, Jonathan Turley:

Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL): Professor Turley, in 2006, you wrote an op-ed in The Guardian entitled, quote, Stop Persecuting Polygamists. There, you likened polygamists to, quote, persecuted minorities. And you said polygamy is, quote, a practice with deep and good faith, religious meaning. Isn’t that what you said?

Turley: I represented the Sister Wives, a family, in challenging a polygamy prosecution.

Krishnamoorthi: The answer is yes. You’ve been crusading for legalizing polygamy for years. In fact, in an op-ed in the USA Today, you said that a Utah polygamist named Tom Green, who was also convicted of pedophilia for raping his 13-year-old stepdaughter, should not have been charged with polygamy. 


Years ago, UD wrote one of her best limericks (at least I think so) about her many-wives-loving colleague:

A colleague of UD‘s named Turley
Wants one boy to have many girlies.
“My thing on polygamy
Makes UD quite sick of me,
And even my wife has turned surly.”
