Romney Picks Judge Bork as Judicial Adviser

Saturday, 06 Aug 2011 05:23 PM

As he did the last time around in 2008, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has tapped an advisor team of pro-life, conservative legal eagles to advise him on, among other things, appointing judges, according to LifeNews.com.

The new group features more heavyweights than his first – with the new co-chairman of the Romney Justice Advisory Committee being none other than Robert Bork, an unsuccessful Supreme Court nominee, who was infamously lambasted by the liberals.

“After participating in a searching no-holds-barred conversation among Mitt, his wife, Anne, and a group of pro-life activists in March 2007, I was completely convinced of his sincerity on the life issues. The pro-life movement has staked so much on the confidence that people’s minds can be changed that it would be strange to accuse a person of ‘flip-flopping’ when, as in Mitt’s case, his mind and heart have brought him to respect the dignity of human life from conception to natural death.”

The Romney judicial team, according to reports, has 63 members. Look for some of the top legal names from the Bush administration like Steven Bradbury, Michael Chertoff, Jay Stephens and H. Christopher Bartolomucci.
