Kerry Seeks Documents

The AP is reporting that Senator Kerry is already calling for the release of all legal documents and memos authored by John Roberts while he worked in the Reagan and Bush 41 administrations, in the White House counsel’s office and solicitor general’s office, respectively. The story also reports that Democrats want more details on Roberts’ work for Florida governor Jeb Bush during the 2000 election recount. Are they next going to ask for Roberts’ correspondence with private clients?
