Backers of Sotomayor: “Let’s Get the Firefighter!”
In preparation for the upcoming Senate confirmation debate, supporters of Judge Sonia Sotomayor are stooping to a new low… According to McClatchy Newspapers, they are going after the Connecticut firefighter at the center of one of the nominee’s most controversial rulings – the one recently overturned by the United States Supreme Court in Ricci v. DeStefano.
This is not unusual. It is the M-O of liberals… they’re all for the “little guy” as a political poster-child, but they simply don’t bat an eye at running over him if it’s necessary to accomplish their agenda.
Mr. Ricci, whatever his past may reveal, is a private citizen who had his day in court… but not just any court, he had his day in the United States Supreme Court, and he won. And now liberal special interest groups want to go after HIM – personally – simply because Judge Sotomayor wrote a lousy opinion with her colleagues and now is getting repudiated for its foolishness.
Republicans should object strongly to these types of personal attacks… and so should Judge Sotomayor.
