Republican Lawmakers Leading Witch Hunt Against Muslim Group

The Council of American-Islamic Relations has recently come under attack from four Congressional Republicans who accuse the group of attempting to plant spies in key Congressional offices in order to affect policy.  Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC), Rep. John Shadegg (R-AZ), Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), and Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) held a press conference yesterday accusing the Muslim advocacy group of "trying to infiltrate the offices of members of Congress by placing interns in the offices."  The accusations against CAIR are in large part frivolous and are based on a new book written by authors known for their history of deception and bigotry.

GOP Senators Mix Up Talking Points On Judge Sotomayor

In a Senate floor speech on August 5, 2009, Sen. Sam Brownback (R-KS) argued that Judge Sonia Sotomayor's 17-year record as a mainstream jurist was "unpersuasive" because, "as a judge on the court of appeals, Judge Sotomayor has been constrained by Supreme Court precedent."  His statement contradicted Sen. Richard Burr's (R-NC) claim earlier today that Sotomayor has a record of ignoring judicial precedent.
