ezs note:  Jeff Mateer is an assistant attorney general in Texas. He is also a nominee for a federal judgeship.

He is also an asshole extraordinaire.

Unlike Trump, who is in office either four or eight years (gawd, let it be less than that) Mateer, if nominated, will be behind the bench for life.  Go to www.senate.gov and say NO to Mateer's nomination.  And say no to both Senators (remember, there are two from each state).  Thanks.

ezs note:  Michael Kruse's article is fairly long, but there is a piece, very short, that says it all:

"You remind me of Howard Hughes," a friend told him.

"Thanks," Trump said.  "I admire him."

Ahem...THAT says it all.
