My jaw hit the floor when I read this. A federal judge actually had the nerve to slander Sarah Palin in an open court. Someone whould sue the pants off of this woman…and demand her resignation as well! Legislating from the bench is one thing; it is often up to interpretation. This is politicizing the bench, and does not fit the “good behavior” standard that they must hold in order to keep office.
From the New York Daily News:
A federal judge got political Wednesday, taking a swipe at Sarah Palin while powwowing with lawyers in the case of an autistic boy whose parents are fighting a ban on big dogs at their luxury upper East Side building.
Manhattan Federal Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald blasted the Alaska governor and former vice presidential candidate for bringing her Down syndrome child on stage after a debate.
“That kid was used as a prop,” Buchwald told lawyers during a hearing on Wednesday. “And that to me as a parent blew my mind.”
Buchwald, a 62-year-old Democrat appointed by former President Bill Clinton, said Palin should have put her child to bed. Such conferences are often held behind closed doors, but Buchwald held yesterday’s session in open court. “Tell me who told the reporter,” Buchwald demanded after realizing her words were on the record.
