Trestin Meacham

Trestin Meacham was a 2012 Constitution Party candidate for District 24 of the Utah State Senate; he lost the election by garnering only 13% of the vote. In December 2013, he launched a two-week hunger strike hoping to convince Utah to exercise the option of “nullification” regarding a federal court ruling to allow same-sex marriage in Utah. He ended the fast after the U.S. Supreme Court issued a stay in the federal court ruling, pending its appeal. He has since stated his “mission in life” is to fight against the “homosexual movement.”

These past few years may end up being known as the years of “Conservatives Behaving Badly.” At the end of last year, the Republicans in Congress conducted a massive foot stomping, pout-out and shut down the government because they did not get their way on the previous healthcare bill. In the state of Utah, conservatives were shocked when the justice system intervened on the subject of marriage equality. Now, we have a couple of adult size tantrums playing out publicly...
