Wisconsin Rep: ‘Almost Impossible’ For Straight White Men To Be Nominated As Federal Judges Under Biden

isconsin Rep. Glenn Grothman (R) said Thursday it’s “almost impossible” for straight, white men to get appointed as federal judges now, citing the fact that, of the 97 federal judges appointed by President Biden, three were straight white men.

Key Facts
Five of the 97 judges are white men, but two of those five are gay, Grothman said, citing an unnamed legal study, while speaking on the House floor.

He said Biden’s nominating techniques make it “almost impossible for white guys” who are straight to get appointed.

He spoke about the topic earlier in March, calling the statistic “a little bit scary” and said Biden was “actively discriminating against white heterosexual men.”

Forbes reached out to the Biden administration for comment.
