Default Obama’s Appeals Court Nominee Sent to Full Senate with Record of Leniency for Sex Off

Quote:
Washington (CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama’s controversial nominee to serve on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York fits the activist judiciary agenda of the administration, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said.

U.S. District Judge Robert Chatigny of Connecticut took what many considered extraordinary judicial actions in 2005 to prevent the execution of a serial killer, and the judge also has a record of lenient sentencing for sex offenders.

Nevertheless, the Senate Judiciary Committee, on a party-line vote, sent his nomination to the full Senate on Thursday. The committee vote was 11-7-1, with only Democrat, Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, abstaining. All the Republicans voted against the nomination.

“This president clearly has a view of the judiciary that is contrary to the classical American understanding of the law,” Sessions, ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, told CNSNews.com.

“He believes, he said repeatedly, that a judge should show empathy. That’s not what a judge is for,” Sessions said. “A judge is a servant of the law. They put on a robe to be dispassionate and apply the law as written.

“The president grew up as a community activist. He sees courts as part of a process by which political agendas can be advanced. So I’m not surprised that a number of the nominees that have been submitted by this president tend to be consistent with his view with the role of a judge,” Sessions added.

CNSNews.com - Obama?s Appeals Court Nominee Sent to Full Senate with Record of Leniency for Sex Offenders, Serial Killer

This is the type of judge Kagan will be if she gets through the confirmation hearings, one who doesn't interpret the law. Liberal judges don't care a wit about the Constitution or the law they only care about feelings!
