Justice Cannon. First of all, is there any other photos besides the same one we have seen for a mo.?

Secondly, what is her record that made her a Chosen One pick? I know it's typical to delay and attempt (in this case successfully) to sway the legal system, but it seems once again that MSM has other work to do. She threw a wrench into what should have been pretty straight forward, which makes me wonder (again) how easily manipulated it all is.

except that he's in advertising, not law. No indication that he's involved in the Federalist Society.

Here is her questionnaire: https://www.judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/Cannon%20SJQ%20-%20PUBLIC.pdf

There is nothing particularly shocking or out of the ordinary about it, except that it's pretty thin for someone who wanted to be a federal judge - she had no prior judicial experience and not much trial experience (6 cases). She is a member of the Federalist Society, which would have recommended her.
