Skip to comments.Christie's second N.J. Supreme Court nominee [openly gay] to get confirmation hearing
Posted on 05/21/2012 1:41:00 PM PDT by kevcol
TRENTON Chatham borough Mayor Bruce Harris, Gov. Chris Christies pick for the state Supreme Court, will finally get his confirmation hearing the end of this month.
Scutari today said Harris, who would be New Jerseys first openly gay and third African-American justice, will be considered by the Judiciary Committee May 31. Thats four months after Christie nominated him, and two months after the panel rejected Phillip Kwon, Christies other nominee.
Kwon, a registered independent since April 2011 but a Republican in New York for the previous decade, drew criticism from Democrats who questioned his familys finances and were concerned he would upset the traditional political balance on the bench. Republicans said he was the victim of politics.

And wonder if Coulter likes this pick.
This says a lot about the fat man.
Christie will nto be getting my vote when running for re-election. He is a major Rino. I could care less if he is fiscally conservative being that he is a flaming pile of massive corruption when it comes to values. This piece of dirt is ruining this state with his Court nominations.
- the 'Gay' Agenda
Big mistake. . .
LOL, so you would see another Lib in office there in NJ, watch the budget go into deficit again, see your taxes once more go up each year and that would somehow get rid of this black gay judge Christie nominated?
There are two people in America (Christie and Walker) with the stones to take it to the muni unions and take other actions to attack bloated spending and I would be proud to have either of them in my State as Governor. You do know the Rep have a gay advocate group in the ranks don’t you? The Log Cabin Republicans?
My second thought on this. She will certainly be asked; and personally; would love to hear her response to this one. A twisted path Ann walks; since her Christie cheer-leading performance.
(Certainly hope this is not RNC's/Christie's imagining a 'balance to Mitt'- per Mitt's; 'one man/woman' response to Obama. . .i.e. a tangled web made possible by stupid Repubs.)
Or, maybe not; and could be; this candidate has been in wings for Christie; for some time. . .
Given the political convolutions and self-accomodating rationales; a not altogether, ridiculous consideration, however.
Christie has been good for NJ. As good as we can hope for here in NJ. He should stay in NJ. I don’t see him providing much BALANCE to the national ticket.
I’m not happy with some of the things he does, but Christie is a million times better than any Dem governor would be. Having said that, I don’t think he has any role on the national stage.
Christie goes berserk after being criticized for appointing muzzie judge:
Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at all, its crazy! he cried. The guy is an American citizen! He concluded that the Sharia Law business is just crap
and Im tried of dealing with the crazies, adding with disgust and frustration that its just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background.
No mistake. Fits Mittens Homo agenda. Also fits nicely with Barry’s agenda. No pun intended.
Christi is not understanding the Constitution of the United States—AGAIN! Does he not understand that Just Law is Right Reason according to Nature. Only Just Law is legal and constitutional in America—all other is “null and void”.
A potential “judge” who believes that Evil is Good is disqualified. Men of ONLY good character are fit for judgeship. Any person who believes “sodomy is good” throws Natural Laws and God’s Laws on its head. That is the basis of American jurisprudence—Common Law—are based on Standards of Justice based on the laws of nature. Sodomy is not natural and is evil in the way that it is a debasement of the human body—to use it in ways that causes harm to others and self.
He is a Marxist—if he thinks a sodomite can openly serve under an oath to God-—it is an oath to Satan. The judge can not in good faith take an oath to defend the Natural Rights from God since he is for rights from Satan.
“Harris and Boisclair reported a $100 contribution to President Obamas campaign in 2008 and $100 to Chris Daggett, an Independent who opposed Christie for governor in 2009. He also listed $1,575 to gay rights groups and to the Victory Fund, a political action committee.”
Pathetic; that nothing remotely close to courage of conviction is valued from the 'core' of Repub Party. Mittens laid himself, down on tracks for 'one man/one woman' qualification per marriage. . .and now this smoker, from a Governor, who could be - is discussed as - a potential running mate for Mitt.
Pathetic, per the more threatening footnote. Should Obama manage another term; it can only be at the expense of a damning Karma; which could take good people eons to pay for/undo; or just 'eons of prayers' from same; and to same goal.
Bottom line; the challenge of our vote remains; just that.
You are a troll.
OK! Second look; and 'got it'/lol. . .guess I lost it the 'subtlety' - as good puns, resonate from. . .
Agree. . .no question; a good fortune; to find Leadership, that 'speaks' to the critical needs of one's State. Christie knows 'what for' - per the citizens of New Jersey - and their more immediate concerns/salvation; as a viable body politic.
Do not see Christie"s strengths captivating; nor serving; a larger - national - base; for very long.
OH BS!! I am a realist and not an “all or nothing” Conservative as you seem to be. In life there are PRIORITIES and these priorities are not static. At this particular time what we are facing is a financial Armageddon at both the Fed and local level and this along with getting rid of one of it’s major causes (Obama and Senate Dems)is priority # 1.
If things were otherwise going well in the State I lived in and there was no Obama to deal with then I probably would be up in arms over the Gov appt of a gay man because that would be the primary issue. I cannot get to exercised about it now because in the scheme of things it is not near the top.
Jumping to conclusions is never a good idea.
I agree it would be "nonsense". But politics is a pretty crappy game and the #1 job appears to be survival. This is why as much as we would love Scott Brown to be a super Conservative along the lines of say a Reagan, the pure fact is in that State he would never get elected if he were. A politician must "mold" his credentials to fit those of the constituency by whom he wants to be elected. Does this mean he compromises his beliefs occasionally? It sure does and that is reality. The bottom line is you cannot affect a change unless you first get yourself into a position where that is possible. Yeah, it sucks but it is nonetheless reality.
I believe you have said in a few words what I was trying to say in many more.
Thanks; I don’t know why some people on FR can’t see the difference between a somewhat conservative Republican and a flaming liberal Dem.
I hope Christie presses the attacks on Obama right up to the election; NJ (like most states) is in play this year because of how horrible the economy is. Everyone that isn’t running has to function as Repub attack dogs in the same manner that Obama used proxies in 2008 so that he could play “post-partisan” nice guy.
Promoting the homosexual agenda is not being a “realist”. It’s being a “leftist”. Chrisite is a social liberal. It’s quite simple. It’s possible and actually realistic and rational to be an all-around conservative; much more realistic than being a one foot in the conservative camp and one foot in the leftists pro-homoagenda etc camp.
You know in most situations you would call this for a candidate that may be VP material?Giving themselves rope to hang themselves with!This FAT RINO P.O.S. must go down hard!I dont give a rats behind if he is tough on unions!The 2 supreme court justices he has picked him slamming gun owners, and his support of cap and trade is enough to say no way jose on this RINO pig!Bye Bye Christie oink oink!
