Lesbian Appointed as U.S. Marshall

Via the Minneapolis Star-Tribune:
Minnesota’s next U.S. Marshal will be Minneapolis’ openly gay Assistant Police Chief Sharon Lubinski. Her confirmation by the U.S. Senate was announced Monday morning by Minnesota Democrat Amy Klobuchar, who recommended her.
Lubinski was formally nominated for the post in October by President Barack Obama and confirmed by the Senate in a flurry of pre-holiday legislative activity last week.
U.S. Marshals oversee federal courthouse security, protect witnesses, transport prisoners, and catch federal fugitives.
Already one of the nation's highest-ranked female law-enforcement officers, Lubinski now becomes the state's first female U.S. marshal and one of only two women in the nation currently serving in the post.
Lubinski has risen through the Minneapolis police ranks since joining the force in 1987. She was a finalist for the Minneapolis police chief job in 2004.

  1. Christian Louboutin offers unmatched variety, unbeatable quality, unique style and world class look that Christian Louboutin Pumps would provide comfort to your feet as dearly as original. They have all the qualities that their original counterparts possess but the only difference (which is an added advantage too) is that Christian Louboutin Boots bear a very modest price tag. That means that Christian Louboutin Sandals suits your style, enhances your personality, gives you an authentic edge over the others as well as takes care of your pocket too.
