The Washington Post report on SCOTUS nominee Harriet Miers’ apparently shifting position on diversity issues is but the first of what we are hearing are several stories to break on various issues in the coming days.
Another one popped earlier today regarding any lack of clarity on what Miers’ original denomination of faith might have been.
In and of itself, that is not a big thing, but the discrepencies and new questions are now piling up at a quick clip. “What is now clear is that that she simply was not vetted properly,” says a Judiciary Committee staffer on the Democratic side. “We’ve been quiet, but Senator Leahy took out muzzle off on Thursday. We’re getting into this now.”
Problem is, and this may be a bigger problem for the White House to explain, multiple White House sources insist that Miers was vetted. “What you’re seeing are writings and short articles that slipped through the process. That happens all the time,” a White House staffer told us earlier today. “Miers told us she was raised a Catholic. What do you want us to do? It’s not the kind of thing you put a person through the ringer over.”
