Operation Rescue renews its call for Miers’ withdrawal
Washington, DC — The highly esteemed Judge Robert Bork weighed in yesterday on the controversial Supreme Court nominee, Harriet Miers. Miers has been under scrutiny in the past week for having no paper trail or judicial experience.
Former Federal Judge Robert Bork, whose nomination to the Supreme Court was rejected by the Senate in an historically contentious battle in 1987, described the choice of Miers as “a disaster on every level.”
Bork, considered the perhaps finest intellectual mind in the legal community, joins a growing number of conservatives expressing concern over the Miers nomination and asking for her withdrawal from consideration to the Supreme Court.
Operation Rescue President Troy Newman said today, “As more influential conservatives are recognizing Harriet Miers to be the wrong person for the Supreme Court, we once again call upon her to give evidence of her sound conservative judicial philosophy or withdraw her name from the confirmation process.”
“We emphasize that the conservative opposition to Miers nothing personal against her. It is about Bush keeping his promise to the American people,” said OR spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger. “Our message to President Bush is very simple: Miers is a question mark to us. We need an exclamation point.”
