The White House's statement included the following descriptions of each:
Thomas Fitton, of the District of Columbia, to be a Member of the District of Columbia Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure.
Laurence Allen Elder, of California, to be a Member of the Commission on the Social Status of Black Men and Boys.
Loren Robert Flaum, of New York, to be a Member of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council.
Bill H. Stern, of South Carolina, to be a Member of the United States Holocaust Memorial Council.
The District of Columbia Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure, of which Fitton is a member, says its mission "is to maintain public confidence in an independent, impartial, fair, and qualified judiciary, and to enforce the high standards of conduct judges must adhere to both on and off the bench."
Fitton also heads the conservative group Judicial Watch.
Larry Elder is another well-known conservative activist and radio host.
"[Elder] engages political and cultural leaders in meaningful debates over race, government, personal responsibility and education that have elevated the talk radio genre," Elder's website says.
Elder's website also describes him as a "blend of fiscal conservative and social liberal-with attitude" as well as having "limited government/personal responsibility views."
