While the ABA, nonpartisan and Republican legal circles all agree that Thomas Farr is well qualified to be a District Court Judge, Senator Schumer and DC-based liberal judicial smear groups are attacking Mr. Farr. The irony is that the items they are attacking him for are supported by Democrats!
First, Mr. Farr is being attacked for defending North Carolina’s voter ID law for his client, the state of North Carolina. Putting aside the lawyer's ethical duty to his clients, voter ID is supported by a large majority of Democrats in every survey released. The most recent survey put the numbers at 63% support for a photo ID requirement from Democrats and more interesting, 69% support from lower-educated Democrats.Read more
The real question now is why does the media give Michael Avenatti any air time? Before we get into the legal substance of one of his cases and while Republican opposition to Avenatti needs no explanation, we note that there is bipartisan opposition to Avenatti.

(This is the last in a series of five posts on the demonstrated bias of Democratic FEC Commissioner Ellen Weintraub. The first installment is here, the second here, the third here, and the fourth is here.)

Some tweets appear to be posted during regular government work hours.Read more
In what should be no shock, Michael Avenatti again got shot down for a groundless attack on Donald Trump. Not only did a federal judge dismiss his client's defamation case against President Trump, he ordered Avenatti's client to pay Trump’s legal fees.
A federal judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit from adult film actress Stormy Daniels in which she claimed that President Trump defamed her when he suggested her allegation that she was threatened to stay quiet about their relationship was a lie.
Federal District Judge S. James Otero had suggested during a late September hearing that he was skeptical of Daniels’s claim on First Amendment grounds. The ruling ordered Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, to pay Trump’s legal fees.Read more
Sen. Collins Will Not Be Swayed by Abhorrent, Potentially Illegal Intimidation from Liberals on Kavanaugh
