Obama Nominates Activist Judge "Loophole Louie" to Fed Court

| by FRC
One state's reject is another man's treasure. In Judge Louis Butler's case, that "other man" is the President of the United States. After losing a seat on the state Supreme Court--not once, but twice--Butler has been tapped for a promotion: a lifetime post on the federal district court.

The President's latest nominee is so unpopular in his own state that when he campaigned for the Supreme Court in 2000, he lost in all 72 counties. Now, as the Wall Street Journal points out, those same voters will have "years to contend with the decisions of a judge they made clear they would rather live without."

In his years on the bench, the people of Wisconsin had plenty to complain about. Butler proved to be a liberal judicial activist who would side with radical abortion and same-sex "marriage" special interest groups. Last year, he was endorsed by the who's who of the extreme Left, including Wisconsin 's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender PAC and Planned Parenthood.

His reputation on criminal cases was so slanted that it earned him the nickname "Loophole Louie." In one case, involving a murderer who pummeled a woman to death with a baseball bat, Butler ignored the Supreme Court precedent and threw out evidence used to convict the killer.

He's also shown a penchant for throwing out the U.S. Constitution. In a 2008 interview, Butler said, "In applying the Constitution, you need to look at where things have evolved and adapt accordingly."

Thursday morning, Louis Butler is scheduled for a vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee. Do the people of Wisconsin a favor. Contact your senators and tell them to vote "no" on Butler!
