What Would You Ask Judge Roberts? is a new website from seven of our eight women Democratic Senators where we can submit our questions. Apologies if this has already been diaried…
Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., is leading the effort, joined by Boxer, Hillary Clinton of New York, Maria Cantwell of Washington and others. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat and the only woman on the Judiciary Committee, did not attend the news conference to announce the Web site, but Mikulski said it has her full support. No Republican women joined the effort, and Sen. Blanche Lincoln, D-Ark., was also absent.
The women said they expect Roberts to answer questions on abortion.
At least one of my senators is making no bones about it. Boxer said yesterday, “there can be no confusion” about where he stands on the right to privacy. Correct! Let’s ask our questions.
