Conservatives Oppose Appeals Court Nominee

Ad Feedback

President Barack Obama's controversial U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals nominee, Judge David F. Hamilton, could be up for a confirmation vote in the Senate this week.

Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., plans to try to end debate over Hamilton on Tuesday. Reid needs 60 votes to accomplish this task.

While the president says Hamilton is a moderate, conservative groups call him an "extreme liberal."

They point out that Hamilton used to work for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) before becoming a judge in 1994.

In addition, as a judge he ordered the Indiana House of Representatives not to allow legislative prayers that mention Jesus. But he did allow prayers that mention Allah.

Hamilton also spent seven years blocking Indiana's informed consent law on abortion. Those rulings were later overturned.
