Obama's Judge Thinks Killer Rapist is a Victim

Once again, our president has shown himself to be less than competent in filling important positions. This time his nominee for the Court of Appeals comes with some serious baggage. The Senate Judiciary Committee has received a letter from a home state prosecutor blasting the candidate, Robert Chatigny, as a judicial loose cannon.

And a loose cannon is what Chatigny seems to be if one looks at his conduct in trying to fight the execution of convicted serial killer and rapist, Michael Ross, also known as The Roadside Strangler. In a fine example of what liberals use to replace logic, Chatigny described the killer of at least 8 women as a victim of his own "sexual sadism."

That by itself should be enough to disqualify this idiot as a human being, let alone a judge. He pressured Ross' attorney and threatened to go after his law license if he didn't challenge Ross' scheduled execution even though Ross had said he did not want to fight. He expressed his concern that Ross was mentally unfit. He offered that perhaps isolation in prison had led him to despair, poor baby. Meanwhile, the federal appeals court had already overturned two of Chatigny's prior postponements of execution.

Later seven prosecutors from Connecticut filed a complaint against Chatigny with the Judicial Council of the Second Circuit.

This "judge" also issued a ruling that Connecticut's sex offender registry was not constitutional. He was later unanimously reversed by the Supreme Court.

Not only should this nut case not be given a new job, the president should be made to explain why he was chosen.
