The Dax Lopez affair, In defense of Senator David Perdue: D.A. King in the Atlanta Jewish Times – we are grateful for the space to respond

The Atlanta Jewish Times ran an OPED last week attacking Georgia Senator David Perdue for acting to end the confirmation consideration of GALEO’s Dax Lopez for federal judge. In that opinion piece, they also had some things to say about me. Below is my response published this week.

Atlanta Jewish Times

Letters to the Editor – 2/5/16

Thanks to Sen. Perdue

The AJT editorial board recently attacked Sen. David Perdue of Georgia for his leadership and courage in stepping up to oppose the confirmation of recently resigned GALEO board member Dax Lopez for federal judge (“Our View: Dream Betrayed,” Jan. 29). In that attack the Jewish Times took a few swings at me too.

In part, I write to thank the authors of for the acknowledgment that GALEO is an advocacy group — and for quoting me accurately. We agree with Sen. Perdue that Lopez’s decade-long involvement with GALEO makes him totally unacceptable for a lifetime seat as a federal judge.

To be clear, like most leftist, anti-enforcement immigration corporations, the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials is innocuously named but is very clear in its agenda. Both before and after becoming a state court judge, Dax Lopez served as adviser, director and tactician for the GALEO activism against immigration enforcement.

Lopez’s statement that he “agrees with their mission” must always be viewed with the knowledge that, since 2003, the corporate-funded GALEO has viciously smeared law enforcement officers who dare to help enforce American immigration laws. GALEO has marched in the streets of Georgia for another immigration amnesty, lobbied against state e-verify laws designed to protect legal workers and against local jails honoring Immigration and Customs Enforcement holds for criminal aliens, and vehemently opposed voter ID. And they lobby against English as our official language.

The murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco last summer was a direct result of successful advocacy against detaining criminal aliens in local jails until ICE can pick them up. For the radicals at GALEO, Steinle’s murder is merely a cost of advancing the anti-enforcement scheme.

We think the editorial board may have overlooked the federal lawsuit filed against Georgia’s Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act of 2011 by the American Civil Liberties Union, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and a host of other anti-borders groups, including GALEO. That lawsuit was heard in the same federal court in which Lopez would have served if confirmed.

Among the lawyers suing to stop enforcement of the 2011 state law aimed at protecting jobs for legal workers was Lopez’s then-fellow GALEO board member, Charles Kuck. It should not go unnoted that GALEO’s executive director, Jerry Gonzalez, is even now threatening to sue for foreign-language voter ballots in the same court.

Jerry Gonzalez

We’re not sure which possibility is worse: that the editors at the Atlanta Jewish Times agree with Lopez and GALEO on immigration enforcement or that they want to put yet another Obama-appointed activist federal judge on the bench.

We share the concerns about the content of Dax Lopez’ character. We thank and support Sen. Perdue for his action.

More on Senator Perdue’s courage in stopping confirmation of GALEO’s Dax Lopez for federal judge: Senator Sinks Obama Court Nominee Over ‘Uncomfortable’ Views on Illegal Immigration

Senator Sinks Obama Court Nominee Over ‘Uncomfortable’ Views on Illegal Immigration

Phillip Wegman

A U.S. senator has scuttled President Barack Obama’s nomination of a pro-amnesty judge from his home state of Georgia in the latest skirmish over judicial nominees.

Citing Judge Dax Lopez’s work with an organization supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants, Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., last week torpedoed Obama’s nominee to the U.S. District Court for Georgia.

In a press release, Perdue said he became “uncomfortable” with Lopez’s affiliation with the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials—an organization that the judge described “as very near and dear to my heart.”

Perdue blocked the Georgian’s nomination by withholding his “blue slip.” Under this longstanding Senate tradition, a senator effectively can veto a judicial nominee from his home state simply by refusing to recommend that person to the Judiciary Committee.

For 11 years, from 2004 to 2015, Lopez sat as a voting member on the board of directors of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials. He held the position while serving as a judge on the State Court of DeKalb County beginning in 2010.

During his time on the board, the organization of Latino politicians supported Obama’s executive actions to allow millions of illegal immigrants to stay and work in America without being deported. The president’s widely criticized actions currently face a challenge at the U.S. Supreme Court.

In addition, the Georgia group regularly weighed in on local controversies.

In 2008, the Latino officials filed a joint lawsuit against the Georgia secretary of state, arguing that state law requiring voters to show identification at the polls unfairly burdened Hispanics.

Last year, shortly before Lopez stepped down from the board, the organization commended a local sheriff’s department for refusing to comply with deportation orders from federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. In a press release, the group urged “other jurisdictions in the state to adopt similar policies.”

Perdue also voiced concern with “public comments” made by Lopez after he became a state judge. The senator did not specify the remarks he found troubling.

In a 2012 radio interview, however, the DeKalb County judge outlined steps that illegal immigrants, when detained, could take to avoid deportation. In addition to the advice, Lopez noted:

“That’s not to say that you’re not vulnerable to being deported if you’re just living right and following the laws. Because you’re always vulnerable in a country like this.”

Before Perdue’s blue-slip block, local legislators and law enforcement officials—including the state Senate’s majority leader and two county sheriffs—opposed Obama’s nomination of Lopez.

In an open letter in August, Cobb County Sheriff Neil Warren wrote that Lopez’s association with the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials suggested “a prejudice towards law-abiding citizens and law enforcement.”

But after Perdue blocked the nomination, liberal organizations opened a hailstorm of criticism in which they spotlighted Lopez’s Hispanic heritage.

The Hispanic National Bar Association dismissed concerns over Lopez’s association with the organization of Latino politicians. In a statement, association President Robert Maldonado wrote:

It is hard to fathom that we are in an era of such animosity that a judicial nominee’s participation in a trade association of bipartisan Latino elected officials is problematic …Our only inference is that he’s unacceptable to Senator Perdue because he is a Latino who believes in Latino participatory democracy.

If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Lopez would become the first Latino judge to serve on a federal district court in Georgia.

In a statement, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights complained that “as long as men like Senator Perdue are the gatekeepers, it’s unlikely that one ever will.”

Born in Puerto Rico, Lopez attended Vanderbilt Law School, where he was a member of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group. As a Republican, he enjoyed support from different corners of the GOP, from the Georgia Chamber of Commerce to conservative radio host Erick Erickson.

Perdue’s veto of Lopez comes as conversations continue among Senate Republicans about blocking all of Obama’s judicial nominees.

Some advocate freezing out all future nominees. Others argue that the nomination process already has become too political.

As a freshman senator who sits on the Judiciary Committee, Perdue has demonstrated a willingness to slow down the nomination process in certain circumstances. Last year, he opposed the confirmation of Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

Also last week, Perdue voted against confirming Judge Wilhelmina Wright for District Court of Minnesota after it came to light that she had written a law review paper characterizing President Reagan as a bigot. Wright won confirmation, 58-36.   HERE

Dustin Inman, killed by an illegal alien – Billy Inman is Dustin’s Dad

Letters to the editor

January 28, 2016


I write a short note to say a genuine THANK YOU to Georgia Sen. David Perdue.

The fact that Sen. Perdue stepped up last week and made it clear that Obama’s nominee to fill an empty federal court seat in Georgia was a horrible idea came as huge and very welcomed news.

Federal judges, once confirmed by the senate, serve a lifetime term. Obama had offered up a man named Dax Lopez to be a judge in Georgia’s northern district. Dax Lopez was a member of the board of directors of a radical immigration corporation called “GALEO” for eleven years and only resigned when Georgians spoke up against his confirmation.

A corporate-funded advocacy group, GALEO opposes immigration enforcement, voter ID, local jails holding criminal aliens and English as our official language. As Lopez made crystal clear, he “agrees with GALEO’s mission.” Having a federal judge who openly supports amnesty is clearly wrong for Georgia.

Sen. Perdue boldly used his authority as a home-state senator and a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee to terminate any further consideration of GALEO’s Dax Lopez.

I hope Georgians of all descriptions will contact Senator Perdue’s office and offer a well-deserved message of gratitude. The senator saved us from perhaps 30 years of Dax Lopez and his agenda on the federal bench. To be clear: Sen. David Perdue stepped up when others didn’t and did the right thing for Georgia … the political outsider done good!

The Atlanta Jewish Times attacks Georgia Senator David Perdue and D.A. King after GALEO’s Dax Lopez loses bid for lifetime federal judge seat

The editors seem none to happy with me either…

Our View: Perdue’s Betrayal

On Monday, Jan. 18, Georgia’s first-term U.S. senator, David Perdue, issued a brief statement honoring Martin Luther King Jr., whose “actions to advance justice continue to inspire us all to do better.” Two days later, Perdue stood in the way of justice and betrayed King’s ideals.

Perdue scuttled the U.S. District Court nomination of a fellow Republican, Dax Lopez, because of concerns about “his longstanding participation in a controversial organization.” That controversial organization isn’t the Communist Party or domestic terrorists ready to seize Fort McPherson, nor is Lopez tied to neo-Nazis or the Klan, neither of which would likely welcome the Jewish Latino from DeKalb County.

No, the dread organization is the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials. For Lopez, a Latino elected official as a state judge, being part of GALEO is about as radical as Congressman John Lewis being a member of the NAACP.

In fact, the NAACP, with its responses to issues of particular concern to the black community, such as police shootings and Confederate memorials, could be seen as every bit as controversial as GALEO, whose offense is activism on behalf of Hispanic immigrants, even those here illegally.

Standing up for fellow Latinos puts GALEO on the wrong side of an increasingly rabid group of activists for whom absolutism on immigration — no illegals, no amnesty, no reform, no exceptions — is the political litmus test of our time.

That group has the ear of Perdue, who gave far less time to Lopez than to people such as D.A. King, a rhetorical warrior against “the vast, corporate-funded illegal alien lobby.” To put King in perspective, he wants to oust Rep. Tom Price, one of the most conservative members of the House Republican leadership, for being too soft on immigration enforcement.

King threatened the political futures of Perdue and Sen. Johnny Isakson, who is running for re-election, if Lopez even got a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

By custom, the Senate does not consider judicial nominations without the go-ahead of the senators from the nominee’s state. Isakson told King in a public forum that Lopez deserved a hearing. Perdue, whose cousin Sonny Perdue as governor first put Lopez on the bench in 2010, disagreed.

We’re not sure which possibility is worse: that Perdue is scared of King or that he agrees with him… READ THE REST HERE

It’s over – GALEO’s Dax Lopez will not become a federal judge: THANK YOU SENATOR DAVID PERDUE

David Perdue blocks Latino judicial nominee

The nomination of Georgia’s first lifetime-appointed Latino federal judge was scuttled Wednesday after Republican Sen. David Perdue declined to back his appointment to the bench.
Perdue on Wednesday declined to provide a “blue slip” for Dax Lopez, a severe blow to his nomination. Both home-state senators customarily must approve of a nominee before he or she goes to the full Judiciary Committee by sending in the slip.

U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson last week said Lopez deserved a hearing, but he has yet to ask the committee for one. But Perdue’s seat on the Judiciary Committee essentially gives him veto power over Isakson if he decides to act.

Perdue said in a statement he became “uncomfortable” with Lopez’s participation with the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials after a review of his professional and judicial record.

“I am particularly concerned with his continued participation with this organization and his public comments after he became a state judge,” said Perdue. “Unfortunately, our personal meeting, while cordial and informative, did not fully alleviate my concerns.”

Lopez, a DeKalb County State Court judge, is a Jewish Republican who is a member of the conservative Federalist Society. He was appointed to the Georgia bench by Perdue’s cousin, former Gov. Sonny Perdue. And the counsel for Perdue’s Senate campaign, Josh Belinfante, served on the panel convened by the senators that sent Lopez’s name to the White House.

When he was tapped for the seat in July by President Barack Obama it seemed to many to be a foregone conclusion. State Republican Party counsel Anne Lewis, former state House Majority Whip Ed Lindsey and a slew of other prominent GOP attorneys signed a letter to the senators in support of Lopez in September.

But a groundswell of conservative blowback quickly slowed the momentum. The attacks center on his past membership on the board of GALEO, which supports a path to citizenship for people here illegally and fought tougher state laws on immigration.

Immigration is a hot-button issue for the GOP base now, with Donald Trump – who called for mass deportations and the magnificent Mexican border wall – leading the presidential primary in Georgia and nationally. Perdue, meanwhile, campaigned for his first-term win in 2014 opposing any sort of “amnesty” for immigrants here illegally.

“There would be a political price to pay for either conservative United States senator, one of them running for re-election, letting it go to the committee process with everything that’s been revealed about GALEO,” D.A. King, an activist who has led the charge against Lopez, said in December.

Other conservatives rallied to Lopez’s side in recent weeks. Among them was Erick Erickson, the conservative WSB Radio provocateur, who said he was the “most free-market” of all the judicial picks nationwide. He called Lopez the “best pick you could hope for from the president of the United States for Georgia.”

But it wasn’t enough to surmount concerns from the GOP’s right flank. And Perdue hinted some of his Republican colleagues would have had the same fears.

“I believe similar concerns would be raised by many of my colleagues, making Judge Lopez’s final confirmation unattainable,” he said.


Erick Erickson endorsed Dax Lopez – D.A. King in the Cherokee Tribune: Former illegal alien lobbyist not right fit for federal judge

Cherokee Tribune

Former illegal alien lobbyist not right fit for federal judge

January 20, 2016


D.A. King 

With the illegal alien lobby and the donor-class Republicans on one side, and Georgia’s conservative voter base on the other, the battle over the Obama nomination of Dax Lopez for federal judge in the state is proving the adage that “politics makes strange bedfellows.”

Atlanta’s WSB radio talk-show host, blogger and Fox News personality Erick Erickson recently shocked his listeners with an endorsement of Lopez for federal judge — while assuring his audience that Lopez is the best nominee Republicans can hope for.

Erickson also actually told his listeners that Lopez would have no role on immigration as a federal judge. “No spin,” pledged Erickson, although WSB is owned by Cox Enterprises, which is regularly listed as a sponsor of the pro-amnesty Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials Inc. fundraisers.

Dax Lopez joined the board of directors of GALEO in 2004. In 2010, former Republican Gov. Sonny Perdue appointed Lopez to a state court judge seat in metro-Atlanta. In July 2015, the Obama White House submitted his name to the U.S. Senate for confirmation as a federal judge. Lopez resigned from GALEO a month later after heated public opposition to his confirmation.

Federal judges are appointed for life. Lopez is in his early 40s.

GALEO boasts of actively lobbying against immigration enforcement and voter ID — and has done so since Lopez became adviser and served as treasurer and keynote speaker for at least one fundraiser.

Lopez’s public statement that he “agrees with their mission” should always be viewed with the knowledge that since its inception, the corporate-funded GALEO Inc. has viciously attacked law enforcement officers who dare to help enforce immigration laws. GALEO has marched in the streets of Atlanta for another amnesty, lobbied against state E-Verify laws designed to protect legal workers, against local jails honoring ICE holds for criminal aliens and vehemently opposed English as our official language.

GALEO’s website lists Jane Fonda as one of its “founding friends.” GALEO executive director, Jerry Gonzalez, has been a regularly invited guest at the Obama White House for strategy sessions on amnesty.

A recent Atlanta re-election fundraiser for “Republican” Lopez was made up of a “who’s who” of Democrat sponsors and attendees.

Right now, either one or both of Georgia’s Republican U.S. senators can end consideration of Lopez’s confirmation through what is known as the traditional “blue-slip” veto process. All they need do is say he is not federal judge material.

We think political expert Erickson has overlooked the hundreds of immigration-related cases federal judges have ruled on in the recent past. Including the federal lawsuit filed against Georgia’s “Illegal Immigration Reform and Enforcement Act of 2011” by the ACLU, the SPLC, and a host of other leftist open borders groups … including GALEO Inc. That lawsuit was heard in the same federal court that Lopez would serve if confirmed.

Among the lawyers suing to stop enforcement of the 2011 state law aimed at saving jobs for legal workers was Lopez’s then fellow GALEO board member, Charles Kuck.

Erickson also informed listeners of a secret deal between the Republican Establishment and the Democrats in the Senate on confirming Obama’s federal judicial nominees.

The political danger for pro-enforcement conservatives here is that Georgia’s Republican senators could ‘OK’ Lopez for advancement to the next step on confirmation, then vote “NO” on Lopez on the final vote — knowing that he would be confirmed by Democrats and enough Republicans who figure their constituents back home will never be the wiser.

Georgia’s senators could then come home to plead “not guilty” and point to a “no” vote on GALEO’s anti-enforcement Dax Lopez for federal judge.

Georgians should pay attention and speak up.

William Buckler: Letter to the editor in today’s Marietta Daily Journal – a conservative speaks up on Georgia Republicans and GALEO’s Dax Lopez

Marietta Daily Journal

Reader sounds off on GOP dismay
January 19, 2016


We run a small family business and live in Cobb County and I am an inactive Republican. But more than party affiliation, I am a conservative. And to borrow a quote, on modern day politics, “I am mad as hell and I am not going to take it anymore.” I am looking for ways to become active because I see little hope of the people who run the Republican party in Georgia or in Cobb honoring the conservative principles I believe in. Having started paying close attention for the last year or so, the term “Establishment Republican” has taken on new, and ominous meaning for us.

Examples would include the fact that my Republican congressman, Barry Loudermilk, voted to fund Planned Parenthood, to fund Obama’s amnesty scheme and to expand immigration of low-skilled workers and that Georgia is now giving illegal aliens a drivers license. Top that all off with the situation I have recently learned about that Obama has nominated for federal judge a just-resigned board member of a left-wing activist group called GALEO that marches in the streets with the ACLU screaming that we should not enforce our immigration laws.

Illegal alien protest in Atlanta, January 7, 2016

Dax Lopez is financed and supported in politics by a long list of Democrats, including Roy Barnes, Jason Carter and Jerry Gonzalez, Executive Director of the GALEO company. Under the stewardship of Dax Lopez, GALEO demands that we abolish our voter ID laws by claiming that proof of U.S. citizenship at the ballot box is somehow a “hardship” for Hispanic voters. Why are our elected officials not making it clear that even in Mexico, no one can vote without presenting a very secure photo voter ID? Where is the voice of the Georgia Republican party on the nomination of Dax Lopez for a lifetime position as a federal judge in Georgia? Why the silence? Does the Chamber of Commerce really run the Republican party?

Unless this really is Obama’s transformed “Bizarro World,” anyone who stands with the same people who lobby in the state capitol against protecting Georgia from illegal immigration for more than 10 years as Dax Lopez has done should not be considered for a federal judgeship. The clincher is that Lopez says he is a “Republican” and I now see that many establishment Republicans are urging our two Republican senators in Washington to give his nomination the “OK.” If you look up who funds this outfit, you see name like Coca-Cola, Georgia Power and Southwest Airlines along with a long list of liberal immigration lawyers.

I have never written a letter to the editor before, but I want to give notice to our Republican politicians that there are many of us out here now paying attention, and we are not going to take the silence and betrayal anymore.

Can somebody please tell me why U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson thinks he can run for re-election without speaking out against allowing somebody like Dax Lopez to become a lifetime federal judge in Georgia?

TRANSCRIPTION – Erick Erickson on the radio endorsing GALEO’s Dax Lopez for federal judge in Georgia

Posted by D.A. King at 5:40 am - Email the author   Print This Post Print This Post  


Erick Erickson’s endorsement of GALEO’s Dax Lopez for federal judge in Georgia

The below transcription was done from the audio of Erick Erickson’s WSB afternoon drive-time Atlanta radio show of January 7, 2016.

Audio here.

Transcription done by Rev.com

I have added some educational links.


Show intro: “3, 2, 1, 0. All engine running. Lift off, we have a lift off.
Erick Erickson: I guess it depends, if you’re [Jude Alison 00:00:15].

Welcome, it’s Erick here on [inaudible 00:00:17] News, 95.5 AM 750 WSB, the full number 404 872 0750 1 800 WSB Talk. Wow, breaking news – Lynn Westmoreland, congressman out of Peachtree City is going to retire from congress, already getting phone calls, a ton of phone calls from people asking me if I’ve got a pick in there – I might know someone who would be very good for that job. I’m reaching out to him to see if he’s interested. Might get a quick endorsement for me out of this, for a candidate in that race.

I want to get into that and the implications of it, and Lynn Westmoreland’s history, and rumors are he wants to lay ground for governor’s race or something. There’s a headline in the AJC today – Sam Olens may have unintentionally, or intentionally taken himself out of the race for governor with his statement on Syrian refugees. Couldn’t be helped, he’s following the law.

(Begin Lopez endorsement) I want to begin somewhere else, though, and this may make some of you a little angry with me, but I want to lay out my thinking on this for you, because there’s an issue happening right now in the US Senate that affects Georgia directly. You see, there’s a state court judge in DeKalb County, his name is Dax Lopez, and he has been nominated by the president to be a federal judge, and the problem for Dax Lopez that you need to know, for the US district court in the northern district of Georgia, is that … Well, he supports immigration reform, and before he entered in to being a judge, his political positions, he was very aggressively for immigration reform. People are upset, conservative activists are upset about Dax Lopez, because he’s for immigration reform.

Folks, I am told rather privately, although I can say publicly, that the democrats and the republicans are structuring deals for this year, and what they will do, and one of the issues is going to be judges to be approved, and one of the judgeships that the president is very concerned about is the northern district of Georgia. There have been a number of hurdles getting a judge along the way for the seat, and the president wants the seat filled.

Here’s what I’m telling you: If you’re not going with Dax Lopez to be a judge, there’s going to be a vote. It’s going to come to the floor, and all of the democrats, and a handful of republicans are going to vote for someone to fill that seat, and you’re not going to get a better nominee than Dax Lopez. That’s a fact. Dax Lopez, of all the judicial picks by the president nationwide, he’s probably the most free market. Most willing to understand that business needs to be able to do business. He’s going to be the best pick you could hope for from the president of the United States, for Georgia. He is the least liberal nominee I think the president has probably put on the bench nationwide at a district court position. Members of the Conservative Federalist Society have come out in favor of him, a number of republicans have come out in favor of him – I’m just telling you, you don’t go with Dax Lopez, there’s a deal being cut in congress on judicial votes, and if you’re not going with him, you’re going to get some wackadoo liberal, and there are going to be enough republicans to vote for that person.

Either go with Dax Lopez, or we’re going to get a judge on the bench who’s far worse for business, far worse for freedom, far worse for individual liberty than he is – And he’s not bad on any of those issues, including individual liberty. He’s not. DeKalb County state court judge, a lot of my republican friends up there, conservatives all of them, a lot of them Ted Cruz supporters, even – All like him, think he’s a good guy, think he would be a great judge. It is the immigration issue that is the hurdle, guess what? He’s not going to have a role to play in that issue on the federal bench in the northern district of Georgia, he’s just not. I would say, Johnny Isakson, David Perdue, go on and let him go to the floor and vote for him, get him on the bench. I think it’s the right thing to do. I think that he would be far better than anyone else we would get down the line, and I hope that Perdue and Isakson will take that into consideration that a fire-breathing conservative like me thinks that this is the best pick we’re going to get, and he would be good pick for a republican, frankly, as well – And that’s the truth, no spin, so go for it.

Now, let’s step out and check traffic before we get onto the-

Thank you, sir. Sorry, the call screening program has locked out, and apparently if I push this little button on Windows 7 it requires that the computer starts talking to me, I had no idea if you guys heard that. All right, someone else is going to have to control alt delete because I’m locked out of the computer for call screening, but the phone number’s 40487207501800 WSB Talk. I see a text coming through from a buddy of mine to repeat what I said at the very end.

Yeah, if a republican president nominated Dax Lopez based on his record, based on his background, based on where he is and the people who are supporting him in the Federalist Society, the Chamber of Commerce and what not, he would be a logical person for a republican to pick as well, and republicans would be falling all over themselves to praise him and get him on the bench, and they would. I don’t have a problem with the guy. He’s the best pick we could possibly have here in the northern district of Georgia. The northern district covers … It’s kind of weird, they’re diagonal, the districts. There’s the southern district, the middle district and the northern district. The middle district actually covers Athens, Macon, Albany. The southern district, Brunswick, Valdosta, Waycross, Savannah. The northern district, Atlanta up to Gainesville, that area, and he would be a good pick.

I know they’re cutting a deal, I know they are. I have a credible source telling me they’re mapping out, Harry [inaudible 00:06:50] this year, one of the issues is judges, and if they don’t get Dax Lopez they’re going to get someone else, and that someone else is going to be far worse, so let’s get a move on with him.”
