We won the Senate. Is there any reason we are still filling up Federal Judgeships with these sycophants of Obama? She has been floating around out there since last February, why not stall her out for one more year? Are you telling me the GOP can’t insist that Obama find one that is acceptable and willing not to play the race card?
President Obama’s nominee for a federal judgeship in Minnesota accused the Reagan administration of “bigotry” in her writing for the prestigious UCLA Law Review in 1989.
Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Wilhelmina Wright, who is expected to win Senate confirmation to federal District Court in her state next Tuesday, wrote the accusation shortly before graduating Harvard Law School.
Wright accused Chief Justice William Rehnquist and President Reagan of aiding “white people [who] are running and hiding” from desegregated public schools.
“Their mad scramble is aided by a Chief Justice who owned racially restrictive property and a Presidential administration that believes bigotry, poverty, and poor educational opportunities for most public school students are the unavoidable fruits of a ‘thriving’ free market economy.”
Later in the same law review, but while addressing a different topic, Wright wrote that “the sanctity of property and the belief in the hierarchy of races” undergirds racism in America.
Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar, both D-Minn., have shepherded Wright through the Senate process afterrecommending her nomination to President Obama last February.
