Chuck Schumer's brother in law offered federal judgeship


Recommended Posts

American Thinker:

A shabby, tawdry political deal seems to be at the bottom of the nomination of Kevin McNulty, Senator Chuck Schumer's (D-NY) brother in law, to the federal bench.

Kevin McNulty, who is married to Schumer's sister, was nominated for the $174,000-a-year lifetime post in the U.S. District Court on Dec. 16, according to the New York Post.

"McNulty came out of left field," the Post quoted someone involved in New Jersey's judicial politics as saying. "McNulty's not a dumb guy, but people were just, like, 'How'd that happen?' "

The paper's sources suggested the nomination was a nod by Lautenberg to Schumer, in a bid to stave off opposition from Schumer and other Democratic leaders to the 87-year-old Lautenberg running for reelection in 2014.snip
