With Judge Sonia Sotomayor already facing questions over her 60 percent reversal rate, the Supreme Court could dump another problem into her lap next month if, as many legal analysts predict, the court overturns one of her rulings upholding a race-based employment decision.
Three of the five majority opinions written by Judge Sotomayor for the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals and reviewed by the Supreme Court were reversed, providing a potent line of attack raised by opponents Tuesday after President Obama announced he will nominate the 54-year-old Hispanic woman to the high court.
“Her high reversal rate alone should be enough for us to pause and take a good look at her record. Frankly, it is the Senates duty to do so,” said Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America.
Judge Sotomayor will likely be confirmed by the U.S. Senate but make no mistake – She is a left-wing activist judge who will “MAKE LAW” from the bench.
Elections have consequences and the GOP will have the opportunity to use this appointment to campaign for more GOP Senators that would temper any further Obama appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court.
