Patrick Leahy is fed up and he should be.
Dawn Johnsen, President Obama’s nominee to head the all important Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department, has been awaiting action by the full Senate since mid-March.
David Hamilton, President Obama’s first judicial nomination, has been waiting since the beginning of June.
Marisa Demeo, nominated to be an Associate Judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia has been waiting since the end of May.
These are just three of the 15 Justice Department and Judicial nominees that Republicans have been stalling for months! "The Senate has to do better," says
Judiciary Chairman Leahy — and we couldn’t agree more.
And take action by signing onto our petition urging the Senate to confirm Dawn Johnsen.
