Senator Graham – Judge Killer?

by Jonathan H. Adler

That is the implication of this article in South Carolina’s The State newspaper.  It reports on the the Committee for Justice’s accusation that Senator Graham’s opposition has effectively killed the confirmation hopes of William Haynes to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.  As the story suggests, Graham’s reported opposition to Haynes is less upsetting than Graham’s apparent role in preventing Haynes from receiving an up-or-down vote on the Senate floor.
