The Tampa Bay Times calls out twice-divorced Florida Attorney Genderal Pam Bondi as its “Loser of the Week,” for immediately appealing a South Florida court ruling overturning the state’s same-sex marriage ban.

Bondi “is becoming the face of opposition to marriage equality. All signs point to the tide of history rolling over Bondi, who is up for re-election in November.”

Bondi says in court documents that same-sex marriages would “impose significant public harm.”

Last week, Monroe County Circuit Judge Luis Garcia ruled last week that the ban on same-sex marriage added to the state constitution by Florida voters in 2008 is discriminatory and violates gay people’s right to equal treatment under the law.

Bondi’s immediate notice of appeal created an automatic stay that puts the ruling on hold.
