Committee for Justice: Sotomayor, Like Bill Ayers, Is An Unrepentant Terrorist

This hearkens back to some news we brought you as the anti-Sotomayor campaigns were just warming up on the right. Do you remember Curt Levey and the Committee for Justice? Levey’s the guy who went on TV and offered up race- and gender-based attacks on Sotomayor, then turned around and expressed shock that other conservatives had gone so far as to call her a racist.

Now his group is running this ad:

In the spot, Sotomayor is compared to conservative bogeyman Bill Ayers, and is alleged to have “led a group supporting violent, Puerto Rican terrorists.” Sotomayor was a Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund board member, and from there, I suppose, it’s only a hop, skip, and a jump to leading a support group for terrorists. Early last month, Levey said he “underestimated the degree to which a few conservatives would say a few extreme things, and that would be characterized as what all conservatives think.” Then his group made this ad.
