"an ugly new chapter"

A Puerto Rican legal advocacy organization that Sotomayor used to belong to helped a group of Hispanic police officers in the 1980s challenge the promotion exams for New York police officers, arguing they were discriminatory.

On Tuesday, the organization, Latino Justice PRLDEF, sent the Judiciary Committee more than 350 pages of documents from the 12 years Sotomayor spent on its board, opening what could be an ugly new chapter in the debate over confirming the federal appeals court judge as the first Hispanic justice.

The Title VII discrimination case involving the police officers was settled, leading to twice as many Hispanics being promoted than before. A group of white officers fought the case all the way to the Supreme Court but lost primarily because they didn't intervene in the case sooner.


Guess who, folks?

No. I am not going to link to FAUX.



Fuck 'em.

UPDATE: Bonus FAUX:



Michael Scheuer: America needs Osama to blow us up in order to save us.

Glenn Beck. Good plan, but Osama is too smart to fall into our trap.

Don't worry, fish, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III isn't the kind of guy who will let anyone get away with bigotry.

I couldn't believe that Glenn Beck clip. That's when I wish I had the X-Men power of being able to reach through a TV set and poke someone in the eye.
