1:00pm CONFIRMATION HEARING- Honorable Robert E. Mullen to the Maine Superior Court
2:00pm CONFIRMATION HEARING- Honorable Daniel I. Billings to the Maine Superior Court
3:00pm CONFIRMATION HEARING- Honorable William J. Schneider to the Maine District Court
States Gov. LePage “In choosing judges, my focus is on the qualifications, demeanor, and integrity of the candidates, not politics.” William Schneider does not possess the qualifications, integrity, ethics, honesty nor trustworthiness of a judgeship. As former Attorney General, he failed in his duties and obligations as Maine’s top law enforcement officer. His Obstruction of Justice, malicious prosecutions and selective prosecutions have interfered with justice and the rule of law. As he was unable/refused to perform his duties and obligations as Attorney General, his lack of respect for law and justice and his lack of honor in a position of public trust will not enhance public confidence in the legal system with Mr. Schneider on the bench. Additionally, this is contrary to the precepts upon which the Maine Code of Judicial Conduct is founded.
Mr. Schneider will carry his bias, prejudicial and selective “web of deceit” into the courtroom.
This nomination/confirmation must be opposed.
