Alison Renee Lee, Obama District Court Nominee


We could take Obama’s advice and judge him by the people with whom he surrounds himself. Or we could judge him by the people with whom he is surrounding us for a generation to come by packing courts with moonbats — for example, his nominee Alison Renee Lee:

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said this week that Lee’s nomination to serve as a Columbia-based U.S. District Court judge has provoked “concerns” among some South Carolina residents. Graham is a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which has not yet scheduled a confirmation hearing for Lee.

Graham is also a collaborating RINO who voted to confirm hardcore leftists Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. Yet even Grahamnesty chokes on this latest assault on our judicial system.

Must be Graham is a racist for opposing a black nominee, liberals will shriek. But South Carolina’s conservative senator is black too, and

Graham’s colleague, Republican Sen. Tim Scott, voiced similar sentiments.

This could be due to Lee’s habit of letting loose dangerous criminals who predictably commit more crimes while out on bail.

In January, Lee lowered the bond for an 18-year-old Columbia-area burglary suspect named Lorenzo Young. Lee consolidated bonds and reduced the total from $225,000 to $175,000 for Young, who subsequently was released and then later charged in the July 1 slaying of 33-year-old bagel baker Kelly Hunnewell.

On Wednesday, The State newspaper revealed that another teenager whose bond Lee had lowered, Dequan Vereen, was charged last week in the shooting death of a man outside a Richland County convenience store. The State reported that Lee reduced bond for Vereen, who faced charges of attempted murder and armed robbery, from $175,000 to $50,000 in February, according to records in the Richland County Clerk of Court’s office.

John McCain’s loyalty to Obama has certainly been unwavering lately. Why should his buddy Graham be any different? Possibly because South Carolinians are sufficiently sick of this RINO’s treachery to mount a primary challenge.

But even if Graham fears voters enough to stall Lee’s nomination, for every demented ideologue Republicans even gripe about, Obama tucks a hundred more into key positions, from which they will be ruling us long after his misbegotten presidency has finally ended.
