Stop Judge Leslie Southwick.
Southwick has been nominated for the federal bench from Mississippi.
Here’s a piece of Southwick’s judicial past:
The current nominee, Leslie Southwick, in his former capacity as a Court of Appeals Judge, affirmed the judgment of the state employee appeals board to re-instate a white female state employee who called a black female co-worker a “good ole nigger.” The racist rationale is that this behavior is somehow not serious enough to warrant immediate termination.
If you want to read the Magnolia Bar Association’s letter to Patrick Leahy, it’s here.
I think it’s time that people dropped a note of concern to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Time to drop some Democratic Senators a nice little letter about Southwick.
