Still Think Judges Aren't Political?
According to the FEC, Alvin and his wife, Mildred, made the following political contributions:
2004 - Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee: $200
2004 - Democratic National Committee: $1,200
2000 - Gore/Lieberman Campaign: $750
1999 - Gore 2000 Committee: $250
If judges and their wives are allowed to promote political campaigns, there should never be any outrage when someone criticizes them for being political hacks. Yet another reason that confirmation of Bush's judicial nominees is the single most important issue for the U.S. Senate and why conservatives are rightfully upset with the Treacherous Seven for their deal with Dems last week.
