First Lesbian US Marshal Sworn In


Sharon Lubinski was sworn in Friday morning as a U.S. marshal in Minneapolis, making her the first openly gay person to hold that position. Sen. Amy Klobuchar recommended Lubinksi, a former assistant police chief, in 2009. She was then nominated by President Obama and confirmed by the Senate.

As a U.S. marshal, Lubinski's job description includes overseeing federal courthouse security, witness protection, the apprehension of federal fugitives, and the transport of federal prisoners.
