Federal appeals court rules Obama violated Constitution on recess appointments – could invalidate hundreds of board decisions
A Democrat, or Obama violating the Constitution? Wow, I never saw that coming . A federal court of appeals today ruled unanimously that Obama violated the Constitution with his not so ‘recess’ appointments, and now hundreds of Obama board decisions could be null and void because any decisions made by anyone appointed unconstitutionally is null and void.
A federal appeals court ruled Friday that President Obama violated the Constitution when he sidestepped the Senate to fill open spots on a labor relations panel, in a major setback for the president.
The suit had been brought by a local business in Washington state challenging the National Labor Relations Board. Supported by dozens of Senate Republicans, the case argued the president didn’t have the power to make three appointments to the NLRB.
