Radical Left-Wing Judge Sarah Netburn

By: Samara Brown

Nominee to be United States District Judge for the Southern District of New York

On May 22, 2024, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a Nominations hearing on 5
judicial nominees.

As is par for the course, President Biden and Senate Democrats, have consistently
nominated radical, far-Left judges to serve throughout the U.S. court system. However,
one recent particular nominee, Judge Sarah Netburn, has shown herself to be beyond
the pale and dangerously radical.

Judge Netburn has a history of inserting her radical gender ideology in the court room,
putting female prisons at risk, disregarding women’s safety, and subordinating the law
in favor of her political ideology.

Judge Netburn’s radical ideology was on full display during her nomination hearing.
During the hearing, it was revealed that in 2022, Judge Netburn recommended that a
male serial rapist be housed in women’s prison alongside vulnerable female inmates
after the male rapist decided he identified as a woman. Judge Netburn recommended
this despite clear warnings from the Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBOP).

When questioned by Senators during the hearing, Judge Netburn was not able to
answer why she recommended that a male serial rapist who was convicted of molesting
a 9-year boy and sexual assaulting a 17-year old girl and was later convicted of
possessing and sending child pornography, be sent to a women’s prison. Judge Netburn
was not able to answer Senators’ questions as to why she ignored and disregarded the
FBOP’s concerns with housing the male prisoner with female inmates.

Judge Netburn’s radical ideology has no place in American law or in America’s
courtrooms. Judge Netburn is unfit to serve as judge, let alone be promoted to a higher
position within our judicial system.
