WASHINGTON A Puerto Rican civil rights organization advised by Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor campaigned against seating conservative Robert Bork on the high court in the late 1980s, according to new documents that shed light on the group that's become a key focus of Republicans questioning Sotomayor's fitness to be a justice.
The Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund officially opposed GOP nominee Bork in 1987, "because of the threat he poses to the civil rights of the Latino community," its president reported in one of several documents from the group that the Senate Judiciary Committee released Wednesday.

Time for Bork’s revenge. What goes around comes around.
The PRLDF is not “Puerto Rico based”.
I would love to send a financial contribution to a bona fide conservative group who speaks truth to power. This "wise Latina" is not very popular with anyone, not even the Hispanics I know.
Its as if a Republican president had nominated David Duke for SCOTUS. WHERE is the media outrage over this racist lunatic?
Sotomayor requires a replay of what her leftist comrades pulled on Judge Bork.
In a College Thesis, Sotomayor appeared to support Puerto Rican Independence.
Did Soto have anything to do with Pres Clinton pardoning the FALN----violent Puerto Rican terrorists who bombed US installations? (Pardoned----so that then-Senate candidate Hillary could harvest the NY latino vote).
