NDAA endorses Sotomayor

On June 8th, the NDAA sent the following letter to Senator Patrick Leahy, Chairman, and Senator Jeff Sessions, Ranking Member, of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary:

". . . [W]e offer our full support for the nomination of the Honorable Sonia Sotomayor to become the next Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. . . .

"Judge Sotomayor's depth of experience with all aspects of the law -- as a prosecutor, a private litigator, a Judge and as a Federal Judge -- has made her into an exemplary judge and an outstanding nominee to serve on our nation's highest court. She possesses wisdom, intelligence and a real-world training that would bring important insight to Supreme Court decisions. The National District Attorneys Association believes that Judge Sotomayor would be a welcome addition to the Supreme Court.

"We are happy to offer our full support for Judge Sotomayor's nomination to serve as a Supreme Court Associate Justice and encourage her swift nomination by the Senate."

  1. I am surprised at this endorcement. Does this mean that a person who is a board member of La Raza Unita is not as racist as a member of the KKK? Of, does it mean that KKK member will have a good chance of getting endorcements and conformations now? Both groups do the same thing - if one remembers the La Raza sponsored bombings and shootings of the 70's and early 80's in large communities one will know that La Raza members are determined to put hispanic issues at the forefront of American politics and they don't care how they do it, just like the KKK wants to do for American issues. Hopefully, lawyers are intelectually honest enough not to complain when Justice Sodamayor begins legislating from the bench.
