Lesbian Federal Judge Confirmed

Written by 


Alison Nathan, openly lesbian, choose by President Obama to become a US federal judge in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York , has just been confimed for this position.

The senate has confirmed her a few days ago by a vote of 48-44.

Concerned Women of America wrote in a letter: "She served as a member of the LGBT issues policy committee during the 2008 Obama campaign. In addition, Nathan has provided pro-bono representation for the ACLU, Lambda Legal, Service Members Legal Defense Network, and individual service members in challenges to the so-called ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy. Her biases are so ingrained and so much the main thrust of her career that it not rational to believe that she will suddenly change once confirmed as a judge. Rather it is reasonable to conclude she would use her position to implement her own political ideology."

Even if certain people reproaches her a lack of experience, the spokesperson of the White House, Shin Inouye, told to an associated press that: "the President welcomes the confirmation of Alison Nathan. She will serve the American people well from the District Court bench."
