2010 DC Circuit “Ricky Nelson” Award Winner is Judge Randall Rader

 
The WatchDawg is proud to announce that DC Circuit Appellate Judge Randall Rader is the 2010 “Ricky Nelson” Award Winner.
 
Judge Randall Rader was unfortunately appointed to the DC Federal Circuit Court of Appeals by George H.W. Bush in June 2002. Rader is yet another federal judicial appointee that dedicated his career porking out at the public trough.
 
After receiving his law degree in 1978, Rader spent the balance of his undistinguished career as a legislative assistant and/or Chief Counsel to Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah among others. After spending many, many years carrying water for political hacks in the Republican Party, Rader was appointed as a judge on the U.S. Claims Court in 1988.
 
As you’ll see below, Judge Randall Rader is without doubt the quintessential “travelin man.” Of course it goes without saying that Judge Rader’s habitual and incessant travelin didn’t cost him one single dime.

In addition to the above 214 days, Rader spent at least 175 days gallivanting all over the world to places like Virgin Islands, Greece, Italy, Egypt, Costa Rica, Australia, Israel, Estonia, Ukraine, Nigeria, Armenia and his usual haunts in Tokyo, Munich, Beijing and of course Rome prior to the trips set forth above. And this doesn’t include the more than 52 days he also spent traveling to Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Bozeman, MT, Miami Beach, Palm Springs and other exotic venues in the U. S. of A.
 
Judge Rader also received over $24,000 a year for teaching at George Washington Law School every year in addition to the 441 days of travel set forth above.
 
During the time Rader was traveling throughout the world and/or the country, he received nearly $300,000 in wages from the overburdened taxpayers of the U. S. of A. And this doesn’t include the wages he received while teaching at George Washington University.
 
Congrats Judge Rader; keep up the good work! We should let all the taxpayers know of your amazing record of disservice; you are far too modest.
