The Clock’s Been Ticking Since Obama’s Unconstitutional Recess Appointments
On January 4, 2012, President Obama circumvented the U.S. Senateand made recess appointments to fill vacant seats on the National LaborRelations Board with union cronies Richard Griffin and Sharon Block.Fast forward a year later. On January 25, 2013, the U.S. Court ofAppeals for the D.C. Circuit reminded the president that he isn’t abovethe law and ruled the appointments to be unconstitutional.
The ruling dealt a big blow to Big Labor. But the NLRB and President Obama are just dismissing it.
Isn’t it pretty obvious that Griffin and Block should step down?Shouldn’t President Obama, the former constitutional law professor, askthem to resign?
They show no signs of budging. But, in the meantime, we’re going to keep the clock running until they do.
40 U.S. Senators have signed a letter calling on Griffin and Block to step aside. In part the letter states,Relations Board, withdraw from all Board activities and stop drawingsalaries and other benefits associated with the positions you purport tohold, as your purported appointments have been found constitutionallyinvalid.”
Why only 40 Senators are interested in following the law, instead of all 100 is anyone’s guess.
