Judicial Nominees

Remember those poor judicial nominees that had been "denied" an up or down vote by Tom Daschle and the Senate that John Thune complained over and over about on Sunday? Lets meet some of those fine people:

Thomas B Griffith has been practicing law in Utah for the last four years without a license.

Claude Allen while working on Jesse Helms re-election campaign in 1984 said that challenger James Hunt's campaign was in trouble because of Hunt's "links with the queers"

William Haynes was the architects of the policy of the Bush Administration allowing prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison to be treated outside the Geneva Conventions.

David W. McKeague presided over a high profile case in Michigan in 1994 involving the Department of Justice and the state of Michigan. Several female prisoners in the state prison had filed complaints about prison guards that include rape. McKeague refused to give the DOJ access to the prison or the prisoners to investigate these claims, and nothing was ever done about it.

James Leon Holmes has actually already been confirmed, but this guy is a piece of work. In 1980 Mr. Holmes penned this, "as the Church subordinates herself to Christ, in that manner the wife is to subordinate herself to her husband."
Also in 1980 he gave us this gem in regards to allowing rape victims access to abortions, "concern for rape victims is a red herring because conceptions from rape occur with approximately the same frequency as snowfall in Miami"

I think Thune should be thankful any nominees got through the process.
