People For the American Way President Ralph G. Neas released the following statement about Sen. Charles Schumer’s questioning (click here for video) of Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito:

I have been involved in judicial nominations debates for thirty years, and I have never seen a stronger performance by a senator than we saw from Sen. Schumer today. He was clear, focused on questions of critical importance, and tenacious in seeking answers on behalf of the American people. It was a masterful job.
