President Obama: Don't nominate David J. Porter to the Western Pennsylvania District Court in Pit...
Don't hand Rick Santorum's former lawyer and conservative extremist, David J. Porter, a lifetime job as a federal judge. David J. Porter is far outside the mainstream of American political and social values and he must not join the Western Pennsylvania District Court.
Why is this important?
Rick Santorum's political career may be largely behind him, but incredibly, a secret deal between Pennsylvania Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey may lead President Obama to hand one of Rick Santorum's former lawyers a lifetime job as a federal judge.
If the Western Pennsylvania District Court in Pittsburgh goes to David J. Porter, it's probably as close as conservatives can get to having Rick Santorum himself on the federal bench. One more conservative activist judge who wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act. One more extremist in the federal judiciary who loves discriminating against women, immigrants and LGBT people as much as he loves doing the bidding of the National Rifle Association. To complete the conservative extremist packaging, Porter even opposes bilingual education and environmental health protections. 
David J. Porter's hateful political extremism is an outrageous and unacceptable legacy for the Obama administration to leave behind in the federal judiciary.
