Support the Constitution, Reject Pryor

Boulder, CO - The America First Party renews its call for the United States Senate to reject the nomination of William Pryor to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. Mr. Pryor's record as Alabama's State Attorney General and as a recess appointment to that court demonstrates his unfitness to serve on the Federal Bench. The vote on his appointment will show if Senators are more concerned with defending the bedrock principles our nation was founded upon, or partisan politics.

National Chair Dan Charles stated: "The filibuster of William Pryor's nomination should end, his recess appointment should end, and the threat to the Constitution his nomination represents should end in his overwhelming rejection by the United States Senate."

Mr. Charles continued, "As Alabama Attorney General, Mr. Pryor supported the dictatorial decision of a lone federal judge and worked for the removal of Judge Roy Moore. Since his recess appointment to the federal bench, he voted to allow a lone judge in the State of Florida to order the killing of an innocent disabled woman. He stands for judicial tyranny and rejects the notions of a limited federal government and co-equal branches of government. William Pryor's judicial temperament makes him unfit to serve on the federal bench."

In a November 2003 America First Party press release, AFP of Illinois Vice-chairman Ed McHugh stated: "The Democratic filibuster blocking a floor vote on William Pryor's nomination to the federal bench is wrongly motivated and ill-considered. Mr. Pryor should be soundly and clearly rejected by Republicans and Democrats because he is unfit to serve. His actions in...[the Roy Moore] matter show him to be a man unwilling to stand up for the principles of a limited federal government and freedom of religion. Like many Republicans, Pryor is being falsely accused of possessing principles he doesn't really have."

In March 2005, the Party issued a press release regarding Terri Schiavo's fight for life that said in part, "Among the many GOP appointees voting with the culture of death is Judge William Pryor, appointed by the current President Bush right after he finished prosecuting former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore. Judge Pryor argued for Justice Moore's removal from office for the heinous act of putting up a monument that said in part, 'Thou Shall Not Kill.'"

National Secretary John Pittman Hey added, "The American people deserve to know whether Republican politicians are serious about preserving innocent life or if they support judges with blood on their hands. By ending the filibuster of Judge Pryor they will have that chance. Senators should kill off his nomination just like he helped kill off Terri Schiavo and expel the Ten Commandments from a hall of justice."
