Last night, word was spreading among conservative bloggers that two Republican senators on the Judiciary Committee may be going wobbly on the review of attorney-general nominee Eric Holder at his confirmation hearing. Sens. George Voinovich and Dick Lugar conspicuously chose not to sign a letter to committee chairman Patrick Leahy declaring that Holder’s record requires more time to review.
Very, very disappointing if true; probing the nominees, particularly for this role as the top law-enforcement job in the country, is their job.
Another item to toss on the pile: Eric Holder conveniently forgetting to mention his past work for Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich (D-Corruption) in his response to committee questions.
