Fear and smear.
How misleading, mendacious and mean.
The lion's share of judgeships go to prosecutors and corporate lawyers.
ASHLEY BROOKE MOODY was a corporate lawyer with Holland & Knight. (Full disclosure: H&K successfully represented eighteen of us pro bono when the City of St. Augustine violated Open Records and Sunshine Laws by starting a phony foundation to run our City's 450th anniversary celebration).
Corporate lawyers are typically defense attorneys for white collar criminals, charged and uncharged: their job is to keep their clients out of jail and out of the headlines. Corporate lawyers and their white shoe law firms contribute to ASHLEY MOODY's campaigns.
ASHLEY MOODY, a former Florida prosecutor and state court judge, is the daughter of a federal judge.
Has MOODY disgraced her office with ad hominem remarks about public defenders, as if they and their clients were vermin?
Is MOODY morally qualified for the job of Attorney General?
Do MOODY's uncouth, unscholarly remarks demean our courts?
Americans need federal judges who are reflective of American values, including former lawyers for torts and civil rights violation victims and criminal defendants. MOODY's remarks (see below) are pig-ignorant and establish her as an Establishment prostitute, willing to say and do anything in defense of the indefensible in our government.
President Biden just won confirmation of 40 federal judges -- more than any other first-year President since Ronald Reagan. Three cheers for President Biden! Three cheers for diversity -- by picking women, minorities and former lawyers for the poor, President Biden will have an impact on federal courts for years to come. Article III federal judges sit for life, subject to good behavior.
A former public defender is more likely to know about police abuses and government lies. Appointing former public defenders will help sensitize the courts.
Deeply insensitive, mendacious moody ASHLEY MOODY establishes the Establishment's court-packing agenda: pick people who are like them, hoping that they will rule for governments and business them in federal court litigation.
Enemies of our right to civil jury trial include big corporations and their lawyers. They contrive to change court rules and precedents to favor powerful parties inflicting arbitration.
Appointing fewer corporate lawyers is a good thing.
MOODY reflects Corporate America's "entitlement culture."
Well-educated, from a fine family, she's a traitor to everything she learned about the Rule of Law in receiving two (2) law degrees.
To Dull Republican AG ASHLEY MOODY: Is your father, a federal judge, ashamed of your impulsive, impertinence. To second-guess the judicial selection and confirmation process from your little 'ole thrown in Tallahassee makes you look small. And as Bill Clinton said in his Second Inaugural, "Nothing great was ever accomplished by being small."
