Obamacare: I’ll See You A Reconciliation And Raise You A Judgeship

Shades of Walpingate. They must know what they are doing wanders the very edge of the ethical abyss, but they keep going…

243 days to go.  In the meantime, I think we should give them plenty of rope; as we may yet see the perp-walk.  We can clean up their mess after we boot them.

From the Weekly Standard:

Obama Now Selling Judgeships for Health Care Votes?
Obama names brother of undecided House Dem to Appeals Court.

Tonight, Barack Obama will host ten House Democrats who voted against the health care bill in November at the White House; he’s obviously trying to persuade them to switch their votes to yes. One of the ten is Jim Matheson of Utah. The White House just sent out a press release announcing that today President Obama nominated Matheson’s brother Scott M. Matheson, Jr. to the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

“Scott Matheson is a distinguished candidate for the Tenth Circuit court,” President Obama said. “Both his legal and academic credentials are impressive and his commitment to judicial integrity is unwavering. I am honored to nominate this lifelong Utahn to the federal bench.”

Scott M. Matheson, Jr.: Nominee for the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit

Scott M. Matheson currently holds the Hugh B. Brown Presidential Endowed Chair at the S.J. Quinney College of Law, University of Utah, where he has been a member of the faculty since 1985. He served as Dean of the Law School from 1998 to 2006. He also taught First Amendment Law at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government from 1989 to 1990.

While on public service leave from the University of Utah from 1993 to 1997, Matheson served as United States Attorney for the District of Utah. In 2007, he was appointed by Governor Jon Huntsman to chair the Utah Mine Safety Commission. He also worked as a Deputy County Attorney for Salt Lake County from 1988 to 1989. Prior to joining the University faculty, Matheson was an associate attorney from 1981 to 1985 at Williams & Connolly LLP in Washington, D.C.

Matheson was born and raised in Utah and is a sixth generation Utahn. He received an A.B. from Stanford University in 1975, an M.A. from Oxford University, where he was a Rhodes Scholar, and a J.D. from Yale Law School in 1980.

So, Scott Matheson appears to have the credentials to be a judge, but was his nomination used to buy off his brother’s vote?

  1. How blatantly corrupt can he get? The judge obviously is qualified and deserving but to award it to him at this time is very suspicious. He will do anything to get this thing passed and make us all serfs. Are we going to get him out of our House today? I feel it coming soon. Hand cuffs would be ok but shackes would be better. I should try to work some extra so I can pay my back DirecTV bill and get my tee vee back. I wouldn’t want to miss that!

  2. Diamond dearest, with all due respect, *EDGE* of the abyss??? LOL These creatures have so far overstepped ethical bounds that they are in freefall in the bottomless pit of cravenness.

    JMHO ;))

    Thx for all you do!
