Congratulations, on your confirmation anniversary to U.S. District Court Judge Carlos Eduardo Mendoza,
Judge Mendoza was confirmed to his federal judgeship eight years ago today.
Republican U.S. Senators, led by Kentucky's obnoxious, orotund, obstructionist corporate oligarch toady, U.S. Senator Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-ASHLAND OIL), procured the feculent fetid foul petty procedural filibuster against Judge Mendoza's nomination. The anti-Mendoza filibuster was a typical case of judicial hazing by Dull Republicans. This tedious termagant time-waster overcome by all U.S Senators June 24, 2014 to to confirm Judge Mendoza, 94-0.
The vote was unanimous.
The filibuster was an abuse of U.S Senate Rule XXII.
Decrepit chain-owned St. Augustine Record never reported the filibuster.
Only this blog did.
