I write a short note to say a genuine thank you to Georgia Senator David Perdue.
For conservatives paying attention, the fact that Senator Perdue stepped up and made it clear that Obama’s nominee to fill an empty federal court seat in Georgia was a terrible idea came as huge and very welcomed news.
It’s an unwise and dated system, but federal judges, once confirmed by the Senate, serve a lifetime term. Obama had offered up a man named Dax Lopez to be a lifetime judge in Georgia’s northern district. Dax Lopez was a member of the board of directors of a far-left anti-enforcement immigration corporation called GALEO for 11 years and only resigned when Georgians spoke up against his confirmation.
A corporate-funded advocacy group, GALEO opposes immigration enforcement, voter ID, local jails holding criminal aliens and English as our official language. As he made it crystal clear he “agrees with GALEO’s mission.” Having a federal judge who openly supports amnesty was clearly wrong for Georgia.
Senator Perdue boldly used his authority as a home-state senator and a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee to terminate any further consideration of GALEO’s Dax Lopez.
We hope Georgians of all descriptions will contact Senator Perdue’s office and offer a well-deserved and sincere message of gratitude. The senator saved us from perhaps 30 years of Dax Lopez and his agenda on the federal bench. To be clear: Senator David Perdue stepped up when others didn’t and did the right thing for Georgia. The political outsider done good!
