WWR: Supreme Court edition!
Yesterday, during day two of her confirmation hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee, Elena Kagan was asked about her opinions of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” She addressed the question directly, saying the policy is “unwise and unjust.”
- The Advocate’s Kerry Eleveld noted that while Kagan attemped to remain neutral on almost every issue she was asked about, she offered an opinion about just two: “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and cameras in the courtroom.
- You can watch Kagan’s full comments on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” over at Joe.My.God.
- Perhaps to comment on Kagan’s opinion on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” Tony Perkins, president of the anti-LGBT group Family Research Council, is scheduled to testify as a witness for the minority later this week.
- Pam Spaulding discusses whether the criticisms leveled against Kagan by Republican senators including Senator Sessions are really designed to indict former Justice Thurgood Marshall for his belief that you judges should “do what [they] think is right and let the law catch up.”
- Day three of Kagan’s confirmation hearing is streaming live on the Judiciary Committee’s website.
