Judge Henry Hudson’s Impeachable Conflict of Interest

To all you RMGers who are excited about the ruling by Judge Henry Hudson, hang on to your hats. It turns out that he’s a conservative activist judge hack who has a financial interest in health care reform’s undoing:

Henry E. Hudson, the federal judge in Virginia who just ruled health care reform unconstitutional, owns between $15,000 and $50,000 in a GOP political consulting firm that worked against health care reform. You don’t say!

As the Huffington Post and others first noted last July, Hudson’s annual financial disclosures show that he owns a sizable chunk of Campaign Solutions, Inc., a Republican consulting firm that worked this election cycle for John Boehner, Michele Bachmann, John McCain, and a whole host of other GOP candidates who’ve placed the purported unconstitutionality of health care reform at the center of their political platforms. Since 2003, according to the disclosures, Hudson has earned between $32,000 and $108,000 in dividends from his shares in the firm (federal rules only require judges to report ranges of income).

Obviously, Judge Hudson should have immediately recused himself from hearing any cases regarding health care reform – an issue in which he has a personal financial stake.

Not only will any ruling he makes be immediately suspect, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Judge Hudson faced potential impeachment hearings for engaging in this blatant conflict of interest.

    …”has a financial interest in health care reform’s undoing”.

    Good luck finding one who doesn’t, and of course, with your impeachment thingie..

  • You hate everyone that doesn’t think like you?

    Hint:  been saying it since this unConstitutional POS bill got shoved through in an unConstitutional manner.   The federal government has ZERO business messing with me buying a product from a company in this state to be used in this state.

  • This case will end up with the Supremes so take a deep breath, take a walk around the block, and then kick the dog if it makes you feel better.
