Judicial Circus


Right now the Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing on three judicial candidates nominated by President Bush in May 2001, Deborah Cook, Jeffrey Sutton, and John Roberts. All three are expected to receive relatively quick confirmations, but not without some controversy. According to my sources, disabled rights activists appeared en masse at today’s hearing to protest the Sutton nomination. The overflow and resulting hullabalooo delayed the start of the hearing and forced its relocation to another room. Now some of the Democrats on the committee are complaining that the committee is considering three nominees on one day. (For those trying to listen on, the hearing is now in SD-50.)
