Have You Heard? Clinton Appointed Judge Is Impeached

Judge G. Thomas Porteous, Jr. was appointed to the federal bench by Bill Clinton in 1994. In March of 2010 he was impeached by the House of Representatives for bribe taking and corruption. I’m just curious, but have you heard this story about this Democrat judge being impeached?

On March 11, Porteous, a Clinton appointee to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, was impeached by the House on a startling vote of 423 “yeas” for impeachment to NO votes at all coming to the support of the judge (with 7 not voting). Now his case moves to the Senate for the final judgment.

Nathan Koppel of the Wall Street Journal’s Law Blog has a nicely succinct post on the details, but the final analysis is that the Democrat judge violated nearly every article of comportment and law with his corrupt behavior.

If the Senate votes to convict, he will be the fourteenth impeached judge in American history and only the eighth federal judge to be impeached.

So, did you hear of this corrupt Democrat judge who was impeached yesterday? Do you think the Old Media will make much of this incident? Or is my report the only one you even saw?

**UPDATE**

Got a note from the good folks tat the Times-Picayune alerting me to their coverage of the three-year odyssey of this corrupt judge. They did some stellar work here. Check it out if you want to see an amazing amount of corruption.
