Posted on 01/13/2022 7:56:48 AM PST by MarvinStinson
Andre Mathis, President Biden’s nominee to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, has had his driver’s license suspended on three separate occasions.
Mathis has a history of habitual speeding, and his driver’s license was suspended on three separate occasions, according to state records. Mathis drove on a suspended license during all three periods. Driving on a suspended license is punishable by up to 6 months in jail and/or a $500 fine.
Mathis explained his three license suspensions in a letter sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“I want to assure the Committee that I am a law-abiding citizen and my driving record is not a reflection of my chara.
Mathis’s license was first suspended for more than a month in 2008, from April 10 to May 15, which he claims he “cannot find a mention of” after “diligently” searching his personal and formal records.
“What I can attest to, however, is that I never knowingly drove with a suspended license, and if my license was suspended at the time, upon receiving notification of that suspension, I would have taken prompt steps to rectify the matter,” Mathis added.
Tennessee records revealed his license was suspended a second time for nearly seven months between July 2010 and February 2011. According to Mathis, this suspension occurred because he “sincerely forgot” to pay a traffic citation he received in Mississippi in 2010. However, Mathis failed to appear in court for trial, which is why his license was suspended. Failure to appear in court can result in a contempt of court charge and an arrest warrant.

Lindsay will vote in favor.
Bank on it.
Isn’t a criminal record a requirement even for being considered for service in the Biden Cabal?
If this is the guy that Sen. Marsha Blackburn questioned the other day, he’s being Peter Principled a couple of levels beyond his competence. Because, he’s black.
I do not know the man, but Biden’s agenda says to me the guy was chosen not regardless of the color of his skin but because of it.
He “sincerely forgot” so all is forgiven.
Future driving infractions won’t be a problem, he’ll be in a chauffeured limousine.
I see these guys in my courtrooms all the time. In Texas we call them scofflaws, and they always seem to “get religion” when they try to renew their licenses, only to find that they’ve been suspended or revoked because they ignored their responsibilities and have warrants out for their arrest. There is also always a certain hubris about them. That’s what we need in a judge, ain’t it? /s
One law for thee, another for me. Par for the course.
“If this is the guy that Sen. Marsha Blackburn questioned the other day, he’s being Peter Principled a couple of levels beyond his competence. Because, he’s black.”
The affirmative action push has gotten so out of hand that when I encounter a minority, my first thought is: Is this person worth a damn, or were they put where they are due to affirmative action.
Sadly, it’s the later, more often than not.

This guy’s driver’s license was suspended not once, but three times. If he truly didn’t know each time the state suspended his license, then he’s too unaware (stupid) to be a judge.
And if he did know, then he’s a liar.
Difficult to find a good picture of this nominee.
One I found still had the numbers along the bottom and his height in back.
Who cares? The important thing is that he is ideologically pure.
Expecting black people to follow the law is racist.
Anyone who opposes this guy is a racist.
...that I am a law-abiding citizen...
Your record shows otherwise. Speeding is merely a traffic infraction and I would not include that in my assessment of a person’s LAW ABIDING behavior. However, Driving on a suspended license shows an intentional disregard for the law and a wiliness to violate something as small as traffic laws, shows a wiliness to violate other laws.
Someone like this, who obviously believes the laws do not apply to himself/herself would make a terrible judge. They would not apply the law evenly. If they see themselves as above the law, then they will see certain others as also above the law, and still others as deserving of the harshest punishment. In short, he is a terrible candidate for an appointment.
I don’t care if he is otherwise qualified. But given Team Biden, I assume that not to be the case. How well is he respected? Does he make good judicial decisions?
How about the old reliable “that’s not who I am”?
