There's nothing wrong with this whatsoever. A judge was considered by a former President for a nomination, what the hell is surprising about that? That should tell you that she's qualified.

In recent years, Wood has presided over a number of major cases. In 2010, she presided over the case of 10 Russian spies who had been captured in an FBI counterintelligence investigation. The most famous was a glamorous redhead named Anna Chapman. At one point during the trial, Wood asked Chapman if she knew she was breaking the law. "Yes, I did, your honor," Chapman replied. She told the court, "I used a laptop in furtherance of the conspiracy." They all pleaded guilty, were sentenced by Wood to time served, and were promptly returned to Russia in exchange for a number of accused U.S. and allied spies being held in that country. Among them was Sergei Skripal, a Russian double agent who was poisoned in the U.K. last month.
Don’t you just love couples in which one spouse is a judge, with all the power and prestige of judicial office, and the other spouse is rolling in dough? Off the top of our head, we can name a number of federal judges who have married well — or at least wealthy. (Like Judge Kimba Wood, above right, with her well-heeled hubby, Frank Richardson.)
Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Supreme Court): Her husband, Martin Ginsburg, is a top tax lawyer and former partner at Fried Frank (where he’s now of counsel). The assets of the Ginsburgs subject to the financial disclosure rules — which, it should be noted, don’t include all of their assets — could be worth as much as $28 million.
New York, NY (May 16, 2016) – Joint research by the New York Genome Center (NYGC) and 23andMe Inc. is helping scientists identify “multitasking” genes that influence a wide variety of human traits and conditions, providing a potential new tool for understanding how diseases interrelate.
It was a "cash only" nanny !!
The case was different from the Baird one in that Wood had not broken immigration law and had paid Social Security taxes for the person.

She should disqualify herself because of her history, there is no way in hell she can remain impartia
Because she was a bunny trainee for 5 days in the 1960s while going to college?
Because she was nominated for and not appointed as AG?
Or is it because she's been on the federal bench for 30 years? How about some dirt about all the biased decisions she's made while doing her job? You know...an actual real reason.
