Just Who is "Not Prepared"?


Is this guy for realz:
Rubio said he is still “not prepared” to confirm Mary Barzee Flores, the local attorney nominated to the federal bench last year, and he won’t specifically say why not.
What a douche! 

Oh and Happy Friday!!!

  1. He is, in fact, a douche.

  2. Rubio is a pud for a host of reasons. If someone is not getting through, get someone else.

    Rubio blocked William Thomas, so we got Darrin Gayles instead. The district didn't collapse when Thomas got snubbed. Gayles is a great judge.

    Mary Barzee was a judge. Then she quit. Then she wanted to be a judge again. Lots of other qualified judges and mags out there, so let them have a shot at the appointment. Thornton or Lopez would be great federal judges. Appoint one of them and we will all forget Barzee.

  3. @ 552 pm - The issue is not why we should not waste an appointment on someone who will, in 2 years, have to take senior and retire (Thornton), or why we should not appoint an unqualified candidate.

    The issue is why gutless, loser, do-nothing, namby-pamby, Marco can't be honest.

  6. Little Marco is not prepared; this means a higher power (TFB) is not prepared.

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
