Ogden Gnashing, Justice Dept Nominee --- Troubling

#TCOT - President Obama is on his 15th day in office and his fourth nomination controversy. While the nation is distracted by a trio of tax scandals, other high-profile candidates are squeaking by unnoticed.

One nominee at the Justice Department, David Ogden, nominee for Deputy Attorney General, stands out.

Our research uncovered a lot of troubling details about Ogden--not the least of which is his long history of extreme anti-family views. On the issue of life, he has fought for taxpayer funding of abortion, for jailing peaceful protestors, against notifying parents whose minor children are seeking abortions, and against informing women of the emotional risks of abortion.

He's been an outspoken proponent of specials rights for homosexuals, the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," and unfettered access to pornography--even in public libraries.

President Obama is considering Ogden for a top post in an agency created to enforce the same laws that he built a profitable career opposing.

Join us in sounding the alarm over his appointment. Ogden's committee hearing is Thursday, so please contact your senators today to oppose his confirmation. To read more on Mr. Ogden's dangerous positions, visit Change Watch at www.frcblog.com.
