Oh Mitt Romney, you have the moral and political center of a mallomar (and that’s what people like about you!)
Yet your high-powered, newly-assembled “Justice Advisory
League Committee” has the firm rock-hard abs deadwood center of none other than former cranky old 80s pop star and “Saturday Night Massacre” alumnus Robert Bork:
On Tuesday, Romney announced his “Justice Advisory Committee” which, according to the campaign “will advise on the Constitution, judicial matters, law enforcement, homeland security, and regulatory issues.” The group will even “provide legal counsel to the campaign” when it’s “appropriate and permitted.” The list includes a roundup of some of the country’s most conservative legal minds, and it’s a possible precursor to what a Romney administration’s Justice Department might look like.
At the top of the list is Committee co-chair Robert Bork, the former Reagan Supreme Court nominee who infamously began his legal career with strident attacks on the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Hmm, anyone from South Florida on this list?
Just everyone’s favorite access-to-justice, increasing-diversity, public law school dean, FIU’s Alex Acosta!
Is it fair to judge a publicly-funded law school dean by the company he keeps?
(BTW that Bork pic is now my screensaver, I just love a guy who points threateningly while speaking).
Your move, swlip.
