« Senators Set Date to Question AG Holder | Main | New Faces at the D.C. Judicial Nomination Commission »

As reflected in its title, "Discipline Board Recommends One-Year Suspension for Former White House Aide," the BLT's commendable posting omits one key fact.

Even more remarkable in this context than Claude Allen's theft by fraud while he served in President George W. Bush's White House, is Bush's previous nomination of Allen to a lifetime seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.

To understand how Claude Allen was part of a pattern of failed Bush judicial nominees with severe, objective problems, see the Feb. 29, 2008 ACSBlog, "Guest Blogger Glenn Sugameli: Bush Judicial Nominees- Torture, Alice in Wonderland, Shoplifting, Ethics and more" or my website.
