Any evidence to present aside from baseless innuendo and what I like to call "typical Xuenchen"?
You linked and posted from a right-wing mirror site that links and posts what other right-wing mirror sites post.
Are you saying that Americans, like this Judge, aren't supposed to raise money for political candidates that they support?
Isn't "money is free speech" one of the tenets of your agenda?
Beyond that, what exactly is the logic here ... if the Judge were going to be unduly influenced (and we're talking about either 3 years ago or 7 years ago) wouldn't the money have come from Obama to them, rather than the other way round?
Let us know when you find some real, or even interesting, evidence.

Xuenchen ... I'm sure you want to go on record regarding the judicial appointments of candidate (and Governor) Scott Walker?
Scott Walker has a long history of cronyism. Walker had so many cronies and campaign donors to take care of that he had dozens of civil service jobs changed so that he could take care of his friends and benefactors.
... Walker is starting to fill judicial vacancies with political appointees and cronies.

... or how about Pennsylvania Republican Governor Tom Corbitt? ...
With Pennsylvania courts facing a sizeable budgetary shortfall this year, some state officials have questioned Gov. Tom Corbett’s recent appointment of his former chief of staff to the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas.
Corbett announced his intention to nominate Bill Ward to the court last Thursday, after Ward announced his resignation earlier that day.
But after last year’s agreement between Corbett and state Supreme Court Chief Justice Ronald Castille to refrain from appointing new justices, Corbett has received backlash from Castille as well as other court officials.
Ward’s appointment came after state Republicans called for a shakeup in Corbett’s staff, considering the lack of progress being made on key party issues, like liquor-store privatization and school vouchers.

... and, I'm sure you'll want to add GW Bush appointee US District Judge Richard Leon to your list ...
U.S. District Judge Richard Leon is winning kudos across the political spectrum for a ruling that rejects the constitutionality of the National Security Agency vacuuming up the metadata on virtually every phone call made in America. Leon clearly possesses a libertarian streak, but he earned his place on the bench by running a partisan cover-up of a historic crime.
Leon was appointed to his lifetime judicial post by George W. Bush in 2002 after Leon won the gratitude of the Bush Family by protecting its interests as an aggressive and reliable Republican legal apparatchik on Capitol Hill. There, the heavy-set Leon gained a reputation as a partisan bully who made sure politically charged investigations reached a desired outcome, whatever the facts.
Here is something i cant get over.
1.Obama campaign was given close to a quarter of a million dollars by this judge.
2.After Obama was elected he basically gave this judge a job
3. Obama called in his marker and "requested" this injunction against the video makers.
