'Trump nominated another anti-LGBTQ activist for the federal courts' & other Tue. midday news briefs

Trump is trying to sneak another anti-LGBTQ activist on the federal bench.

One Of Trump’s Judicial Nominees Sits On The Board Of A Group That Defends “Conversion” Therapy - Further proof that there seems to be a quiet plan to put anti-LGBTQ activists on federal court benches. We need more attention focused on this. Why? Because it is the courts where the anti-LGBTQ industry have been defeated time and time against us. And we can't win in the courts if the judges are former anti-LGBTQ activists. Eyes need to be on Pence for this: 

 One of President Trump’s judicial nominees, Leonard Grasz, has served since 2015 on the board of a Nebraska nonprofit that has defended so-called “conversion” therapy for minors. Grasz was nominated in August to serve on the US Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. According to a questionnaire that Grasz submitted to the US Senate, he has served since August 2015 as a board member of Nebraska Family Alliance, a conservative nonprofit that in 2017 published two pieces on its website criticizing states that banned so-called conversion therapy, also known as “reparative therapy,” for minors.
