AFA of PA ACTION ALERT

Another Troubling Obama Nominee
The Nomination of Caitlin Halligan to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals amounts to extraordinary circumstances, given her extreme positions on a variety of issues.
A cloture vote on her nomination is scheduled for 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday (12/6). Halligan has expressed very liberal opinions on a wide variety of issues including:
– The death penalty (even filing an amicus brief in Roper v. Simmons)
– Individual rights under the Second Amendment
– The War on Terror (approving a NYC Bar Association report she now attempts to disown)
– Affirmative Action

Nominees to the DC District Court are typically subjected to a high degree of scrutiny, one that Caitlin Halligan does not even begin to satisfy. As such, she should be opposed on any vote taken by the Senate, including the cloture vote scheduled for Tuesday.
