CNSNews.com) - Conservative pro-family groups and attorneys are calling on senators to oppose the confirmation of President Obama’s pick for the second-in-command position at the Justice Department. The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing Thursday morning for David W. Ogden, who served as a top assistant under Attorney General Janet Reno in the Clinton administration and has held high legal posts with the Defense Department and at one of Washington, D.C.’s top law firms.
Tom McClusky of the Family Research Council said even though Ogden may look good on paper, the reality is he would be “a horrible” deputy attorney general. “This is a guy who has lobbied in the court system for just about every anti-family issue you could think of – everything from child pornography to children’s rights when it comes to abortion, to lobbying for gays in the military,” McClusky said. Anti-pornography attorney Pat Trueman told CNSNews.com that Ogden has has been on a legal crusade, representing pornographers, abortionists and homosexual activists seeking to change military law.
