This is beyond belief. Senate Dems just don’t get it! Senate Democrats Unwilling To Fight Widely-Opposed GOP Nominee To Legal Services Corporation,
A Senate panel will likely approve the Republican-chosen nominee on Wednesday as part of a package that includes five other nominees supported by Democrats. Outside groups say Democrats are unwilling to try to separate Browne from the package for an up-or-down vote.
Citing her track record as a principal at the conservative Pacific Legal Foundation, Browne’s critics say she’s unfit for the job because she has directly opposed funding for legal services agencies.
… “Ms. Browne should not be placed in a position to help determine the future of legal services for poor Americans,” says a letter sent by the Alliance for Justice, a coalition of liberal groups, to members of the Senate committee that will vote on Browne’s nomination Wednesday. The letter was signed by more than 70 fair-housing and civil rights advocates.
What is the MATTER with these people? We elected Dems, and we get far-right ideologues confirmed ANYway!
