Pryor Battle


The Senate Judiciary Committee is exploding over the Pryor nomination. Senate Democrats are seeking to delay the vote over William Pryor to “investigate” alleged inconsistencies between Pryor’s statements before the committee about his fundraising efforts for the Republican Attorneys General Association and leaked documents obtained by Senate Democrats (and reported on in the Washington Post today). Senate Republicans smell yet another effort to stall a nominee until Democrats can find an excuse to vote against Pryor other than his conservative political views. Given the baselessness of the accusations — detailed by Quin Hillyer – the Republicans’ suspicions are well grounded. The Committee has just recessed, but a vote is still expected later today.
