Democrats Vote To Confirm Obama's Pro-Rapist Judge Nominee To The Second Circuit

The Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee voted today in lockstep to confirm the promotion of Judge Robert Chatigny (above) to the second circuit Court of Appeals, in spite of unanimous GOP opposition to his handling of child pornography and rape cases as a district court judge.

Chatigny's specialty is using a legal doctrine called 'downward departure' in a series of cases involving defendants found guilty of child pornography, rape and sexual assault cases to reduce their sentences. Downward departure could best be defined as 'I have a disease that made me rape the nine-year old, so I'm really not responsible and therefore deserve a nominal sentence, so I can heal.'

One of the most famous cases Judge Chatigny was involved in was that of Michael Ross, the Roadside Strangler, a serial killer who raped, tortured and murdered eight young women before he was caught.

He went to unbelievable and unethical lengths to block Ross's execution based on the unbelievable ground that this serial killer’s “sexual sadism” was a mitigating factor, including hearing evidence on appeals not introduced the original record and threatening Ross' attorney's law license in chambers if he didn't seek yet another appeal. Chatigny did this even though the Roadside Strangler had been judged fully competent, admitted his sentence was appropriate and refused to challenge it.

Below is some footage of the Senate hearings, the reactions to Judge Chatigny's antics by Connecticut state prosecutors and especially revealing, footage of Michael Ross talking about his crimes.

Ross was finally executed - after 20 years of life in prison, largely thanks to Chatigny. That's something his victims and their families were denied.

This is the sort of creature Barack Hussein Obama wants on the bench as a federal judge.

Of the Democrats on the Judiciary Committee, only Dianne Feinstein refused to vote to confirm Chatigny - she abstained. Every Republican voted against him.

Women whom support Obama shouldn't be surprised by this nomination. If the president supports infanticide over and beyond the usual abortion debate, what makes you think he would draw the line at nominating a pro-rape judge?

An even more radical Obama nominee, Goodwin Liu, was previously approved on another straight party-line vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Liu's a Berkeley law professor who believes that the Constitution requires racial quotas and welfare, and is hostile to “free enterprise, private ownership of property, and limited government.” Apparently he never read the Bill of Rights, a recitation of the rights government doesn't have. If Liu is confirmed by the full Senate, he'd sit on the already quasi-wacky Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Then there's Obama’s recent Supreme Court nominee, Elena Kagan, who bailed on her duty to defend federal laws protecting crime victims, while in her current position as Solicitor General. And that's just what we know about her so far, aside from the fact she has no practical legal experience whatsoever.

I'd say this was a throwback to the uber-Leftist Warren Court, except that these kind of nominations go even further and make the Warren Court look moderate by comparison. This is beyond 'liberal'.

Judicial appointments are among the most far reaching and long lasting effects of a president. Republicans and Democrats who still retain their respect for justice, basic common sense and decency need to band together to oppose these Obama appointments and any others he makes in a similar vein.

Remember, it could be your child next.

And work hard to get these dangerous people out of office in November.

please helps me write more gooder!
