Rick Santorum Voted to Confirm Sonia Sotomayor


Hat tip to Jay Sekulow of ACLJ for spreading the word about Rick Santorum’s vote to confirm Sonia Sotomayor, a Constitution-hating black robed-bandit.  I got a call with a recorded message from the Mitt Romney campaign with Sekulow’s voice telling me this today. This was not the nomination to the Supreme Court, but for the almost as important 2nd Circuit Court of the U.S.  (I checked this out because I trust neither Romney nor Sekulow to tell the truth.  Click here to see the vote which took place October 2, 1998.)  It is, in fact, true that Santorum joined the majority of the Democrats and RINOs like Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, Arlen Specter, Mike DeWine, and Lisa Murkowski in voting for the abortion-loving jurist.   But even John McCain and the liberal Chuck Hagel didn’t vote for this confirmation. 

If there had been just five more no votes, then the confirmation would have failed.  I don’t think that could have happened, though.  The outcome was obviously predetermined.  Rick Santorum must have drawn the short straw and he had to vote for it just like No Child Left Behind.  What a “team player”!  What an idiot! 

But I cannot, however, take Sekulow’s advice and vote for his choice Mitt Romney because he is even more reprehensible.  Instead I will vote for Ron Paul, the author of the judicial activist-busting We the People Act.
