Babe of the Week for July 17, 2009 is...
Federal U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Sonia Maria Sotomayor!!!
Berzin, pero why? Here's why-she is going to be confirmed as the 111th United States Supreme Court Justice. Her confirmation hearings began last week and unless videotape evidence of her "making it rain" in a strip club suddenly surfaces, she is a shoe-in.
She is the first latina and only the third female to serve on the court. Maybe someone can do a video of her life and sell it out on the streets-you think it will sell as well as the Alpo and Richard Porter Story? Not in the Bronx!!! LOL!!!
*(For those of you who don't know, Alpo and Richard Porter were two notorious drug dealers from the 1980's that young men from the Bronx still speak of to this day in hushed reverence-go figure.)
Denizens of the Boogie Down, feel free to scrap your "Free Larry Davis" t-shirts circa 1986-a new hero has emerged!!!
Check out her resume-
Princeton University(Summa Cum Laude)
Yale Law School
Assistant District Attorney for 5 years in NYC
Boards of Directors-Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund
Board of Directors-State of New York Mortgage Agency
Board of Directors-New York City Campaign Finance Board
Nominated-U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York by President George H. W. Bush in 1991.
Nomination confirmed in 1992.
Congratulations, Judge Sotomayor!!! You have made your mark!!!
