Impeach This Judge
by

U.S. District Judge Nina Gershon is unfit to serve on the federal bench.

How do I know this?

Because Gershon, a Bill Clinton appointee, issued a temporary injunction prohibiting Congress from cutting off funding for ACORN.

This injunction is premature, unconstitutional, and an affront to the separation of powers. It appears to rely on a novel, insidious legal doctrine known as legislative due process. In other words, groups have rights in the appropriations process. Congress no longer has the power of the purse regardless of what the Constitution says.

Only in the through-the-looking-glass world of a leftist activist judge could the organized crime syndicate ACORN be deemed a victim because Congress decided to stop funding it. Only in such a world could a cutoff of such funding be deemed a punishment prohibited under the Constitution’s ban on bills of attainder.

If cutting off funds is a punishment, ACORN therefore must have a right to funding. This is patently absurd.

By issuing this injunction Gershon has violated her oath to uphold the Constitution and committed an impeachable offense.
