The Judicial Crisis Network, my organization, has launched a project to highlight Governor Chris Christie’s awful record on judicial appointments. Please visit thenew website, share the links, and watch the video below.
The timing of the launch, just ahead of Governor Christie’s fundraising trip to Iowa, seems to have sparked additional interest from the press, leading Governor Christie’s spokesman, Mike DuHaime, to respond by spinning Christie’s record. According to DuHaime:
Gov. Christie has nominated multiple conservatives to the Supreme Court but several have been blocked by the Democrat Senate. Yet, Governor Christie has still been able to get three Republicans on to the state’s highest court, making it more conservative.
By conservative, is Christie’s spokesman referring to the justices who in 2013ruled unanimously in favor of same-sex marriage? The justices who in 2013unanimously voted to open the floodgates to trial lawyers seeking to attack companies under state law?
