The attacks against U.S. Supreme Court Justice nominee Judge Sonia Sotomayor continue. Despite the outrage about these attacks expressed by the Latino community and others, there is no evidence that this nonsense will stop anytime soon. Earlier this week Jon Stewart from The Daily Show ridiculed the shenanigans, making clear how absurd this stereotyping and defamation is not only for Hispanics and other communities of color, but for all Americans.

Please join us in asking Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele, House Minority Leader John Boehner, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to denounce this smear campaign and keep the nomination process civil, respectful, and constructive.

The deafening silence of the Republican party's leadership is leaving many Latinos with a disturbing view of the party. There is much at stake here, including the Latino community's votes. Nearly 3,000 of you have signed the letter asking Chairman Steele to gather his fellow RNC leaders and condemn the statements against Sotomayor. If you haven't yet signed the letter, please do so. If you already have signed the letter, please forward this email to your family and friends and encourage them to take a stand.

We are better than this. It is time to stand against the politics of division and fear and work together for a stronger America.

Thank you,

    Prosecutor Sonia Sotomayor against the Sadistic Brutal Criminal "Tarzan" in New York City - Sotomayor Is Recalled as a Driven Rookie Prosecutor

    Sotomayor Is Recalled as a Driven Rookie Prosecutor

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/06/08/us/politics/08prosecutor.html?ref=global-home

    Some excerpts :

    "In the early 1980s, the New York police were stumped by a violent crime spree in Harlem. Four killings. Seven other shootings. All in the course of at least 20 burglaries - during which the culprit seemed to float into tenement apartments and leave no sign of forced entry."

    "The burglar - sometimes armed with two guns, sometimes with one - seemed to open fire for no reason. In a city buckling under the grim yoke of street crime and a drug plague, the random and wanton nature of the shootings startled even jaded New Yorkers."

    "Eventually, the police arrested Richard Maddicks, a drug addict, in the crimes. An athletic and acrobatic man and a longtime burglar, he was on probation when arrested. Mr. Maddicks had swung down from the rooftops or had nimbly traversed airshafts on narrow planks to enter the apartments and shoot and rob his victims."

    "He was called the "Tarzan Murderer," and he was tried by two prosecutors, one of them a young woman from the Bronx, an assistant district attorney with a Yale law degree and no previous history of handling homicides. That prosecutor was Sonia Sotomayor."

    "Crime is always awful and exacts a huge toll on its victims, but this one was a step above - it was simply evil, and it affects you more profoundly than the run-of-the-mill crimes," Nancy E. Gray, who started in the Manhattan district attorney's office on the same day as Ms. Sotomayor, said of the case."

    "The 1983 trial lasted four weeks and had 40 witnesses, including pathologists, a ballistics expert and a cartographer. Ms. Sotomayor, who assisted a lead prosecutor in the case, handled half the witnesses. Her partner, Hugh Mo, recalled that one of her direct examinations of the sister of a victim brought every juror to tears. Mr. Maddicks was convicted and was sentenced to a prison term that will likely keep him behind bars for the rest of his life."

    ""I think she really stared down evil," Ms. Gray said."

    I have found other articles on the excellence and bravery of this Lady fighting against crime as a prosecutor. She was never afraid and worked humbly many hours for "Law and Order".
