Frisco's Roy Moore

Wait until the people who fussed about an engraved rock hear about this: Gavin Newsom, the new mayor of San Francisco, is defying the California Constitution, which voters amended in 2000 to codify the definition of marriage. At Newsom's order, the Associated Press reports, 'city authorities officiated at the marriage of a lesbian couple Thursday and said they will issue more gay marriage licenses.'
Well, this sort of thing has happened before, most recently when Roy Moore, then chief justice of Alabama's Supreme Court, refused to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the courthouse grounds despite judicial rulings that the monument's presence was unconstitutional. Moore was removed from office for defying the law. What will happen to Newsom?"

Well, what happened to Roy Moore? I say Newsom should be tossed from office, and forced to pay out of his pocket for all expenses the state of California will incur in undoing his mischief.
