THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED FOR MITT ROMNEY, THIS WOULD HAPPEN — AND THEY WERE RIGHT! Civil Rights Leaders Call On White House To Withdraw “Insufficiently Diverse” Judicial Nominees.
Civil rights leaders and members of the Georgia congressional delegation on Monday called on President Obama to withdraw his nominees for federal courts in the state over concerns about their views and lack of diversity.
“The group cites serious concerns that the proposed candidates do not adequately reflect the diversity of the northern district and that the selection process lacked meaningful community input,” the office of Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) said in a statement.
“Additionally, the coalition finds it troubling that several nominees include persons who have advocated in favor of Georgia’s voter ID laws and for including the Confederate Battle Emblem as part of the Georgia State Flag.”
Boy, when I vote for a Republican, it sure has an impact!
