Posted on 03/17/2010 10:00:57 AM PDT by Mobile Vulgus
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...

If Alcee Hastings is any indication, he'll soon be a voting member of the House.
Oh, you mean like Arlen Specter. Har.
Sadly true. Porteous could run against Cao and probably win. If memory serves, not very much time passed between Hastings' impeachment and his subsequent election to Congress.
Mark Twain sure hit the nail on the head with his "native criminal class" quote.
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?
Everyday the trail of failed ‘Rat slime gets longer.
He just moved to the top of Obonehead’s short list of Supreme Court candidates.
First I’ve heard of it!
Thanks for the post.
I’m from Louisiana, so I’ve heard lots about it from the local media.
The local media covered it well, that’s true. But the national media? Barely a word. If it was a corrupt Republican judge, tho, well, we KNOW the media would have talked it up.
