Check out this story. President Obama has just named Scott Matheson, brother of Rep. Jim Matheson, to a federal judge’s post. Rep. Matheson is a key “undecided” vote on the health care bill. The story implies the timing of the nomination is fishy.
Under normal circumstances, it appears you couldn’t come up with a more qualified person than Scott Matheson to name to the court. He’s apparently got impeccable credentials. The timing of this nomination could not be more unfortunate for either of the Mathesons.
