Democrat Attacks on the Boyle Nomination

Not that Salon is reputable or anything. But here's the latest attempt to derail a nomination

  • May 1, 2006: Salon atacks Boyle for ethics viloations

    Hat tip to http://howappealing.law.com/050106.html#014133. GREAT website for breaking news. MANY items covered.

    May 2 update: Salon has a follow-up article that softens their original criticism (Maybe Boyle didn't know he had a financial stake), but other reports are more convincing than the "didn't know" reason.

    Salon.com is not trustworthy.

    In the case of Bursell v. GE, Salon accuses Judge Boyle of a conflict of interest which biased him to favor GE. But even the attorney representing Bursell says that Salon's article was "misleading and inaccurate."

    Read Bursell's letter here: http://www.newsobserver.com/580/v-print/story/435143.html

    oops, typo... sorry... I meant "read Bursell's attorney's letter," of course.

    Senator Leahy is piling on in this May 9 statement on the occasion of the Kavanaugh hearing.

    Leahy says that President Bush should withdraw the Boyle nomination based on negative calls from law enforcement in North Carolina. Senator Leahy goes off on a tangent of counting the number of nominations handled and confirmed, and comparing the record of the Senate under President Bush with the record of the Senate (and the Judiciary Committee) under President Bush and Chairman Hatch.
