J. Christian Adams manages the neat trick of concision and comprehensiveness at the same time, in this column on Sec-Labor nominee Thomas Perez. Key passage:
Perez has amassed a record demonstrating contempt for the rule of law, hostility toward the private sector and an aversion to telling the truth under oath.
If confirmed, Perez would be the most radical cabinet Secretary since Henry Wallaceheaded the Department of Agriculture for President Roosevelt.
If the GOP Senators cannot stop Tom Perez, they cannot stop anyone.
Perez’s record provides ample basis for 41 Senators to send the White House a letter saying the nomination should be withdrawn.
If the GOP Senators do not block this guy, we might as all all move to New Zealand, because it means there is not even a shred of an opposition party in the Senate with any spine, heart, or gumption.
