GOP senators question quick action on judicial nominee
(2008-05-07)
(wgvu) - WASHINGTON (AP) - Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter is among
those questioning the speedy confirmation process for Michigan
Court of Appeals Judge Helene White.
She was chosen by President Bush last month as part of a
compromise to address several judicial vacancies.
Specter says holding a hearing only weeks after White's
nomination "does not conform with the practices of the committee
and is an unusual rush to judgment."
Specter and other Republicans say they haven't been able to
thoroughly review White's record. They note that the American Bar
Association hadn't had enough time to rate her qualifications.
