SMH: White GOP Judge Admits Sending Racist Christmas Card Featuring A Black Couple In Prison
Supreme Court Nominee Withdraws From Race After Being Caught Sending Racist Christmas Card
A white GOP supreme court nominee has officially withdrawn his name from the candidate pool after it was revealed that he sent a racist holiday card featuring a black woman visiting a black man in jail.
A Centre County judge tapped by Gov. Wolf to fill a state Supreme Court vacancy is withdrawing his nomination after coming under fire last week for an e-mail that some claimed was racially insensitive.
Judge Thomas K. Kistler, the president judge in Centre County since 2012, confirmed Monday he is removing his name from consideration.
In a statement, Kistler made no mention of the e-mail or the furor surrounding it. Instead, he said that “several circumstances have developed here, at home, in Centre County, which have dramatically altered the legal system and require my full attention.”
