Miers Supported Asbestos Fund
Friday, October 21, 2005
As if enough weren't wrong with Harriet Miers' Supreme Court nomination, Reuters reports that Miers spoke to several groups last spring to garner support for Sens. Specter and Leahy's ailing asbestos trust fund bill. The bill hasn't made it to the Senate floor despite passing committee in May, largely due to a fear that its paucity of actual protection for victims won't have enough support to pass the entire chamber.
