CFJ: Obama Is Putting a Terrorist On The Bench!

Yesterday, we noticed that the Committee for Justice had just unveiled two ads calling for Sonia Sotomayor’s defeat – one contrasting her to Martin Luther King and the other claiming she wants to “take away your guns.”

Now they’re out with an over-the-top and nonsensical new TV ad that equates her with William Ayers and claims that she supported terrorism by serving on the board of the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund (PRLDEF):

But as the Hispanic National Bar Association – which is mainstream by any standard – wrote last week on behalf of 26 prominent national Hispanic groups: “PRLDEF is a mainstream and respected civil rights organization that serves not only the Latino community, but the nation as a whole.” You can read more about the bar association’s letter and PRLDEF here.

The question here is not what are President Obama or Sotomayor thinking, but what is the Committee for Justice thinking?
