*** SPECIAL CONGRESSIONAL ALERT ***
Will Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison "Bork" Bush Judicial Appointee?
A vote is expected soon in the United States Senate on the confirmation of J. Leon Holmes to a seat on the U.S. District Court in Arkansas.
According to a November 3, 2003 report in The Hill, a newspaper that reports on political happenings on Capitol Hill, "at least four centrist Republicans expressed doubts about Holmes, based on statements culled from some of his writings." The four are: Arlen Specter (PA), Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins (ME), and Kay Bailey Hutchison (TX).
All four of the Senators listed above are pro-abortion. J. Leon Holmes is pro-life. That's the number one reason they might vote against President Bush's judicial nominee.
Mr. Holmes is also a devout Catholic whose "writings" include an article he co-authored with his wife Susan about the Christian role of men and women, husbands and wives, based entirely on the New Testament and published in the Holmes's church newspaper.
With all the difficulty we are having with activist judges and Daschle obstructionism, it is shocking that any Republican Senator would consider voting against a nominee because he is pro-life and because he wrote a Christian article for his church newspaper that the feminists don't agree with. That's religious bigotry!
We are told that Senator Hutchison's office is taking a tally of phone calls regarding this appointment. They are counting those who ask her to vote to confirm Holmes and those who ask her to vote against him.
You see, Senator Hutchison is widely rumored to be seriously considering returning to Texas in 2006 to run for Governor in the Republican Primary against sitting Governor Rick Perry, who, while not perfect on the life issues, is a far sight better than she. Senator Hutchison is pro-abortion until viability and most Texans don't like that.
Senator Hutchison's vote on J. Leon Holmes' confirmation will be duly noted in Texas.
Please pick up the phone right away and call Senator Hutchison's office to add your request to the tally you want her to vote YES on confirming J. Leon Holmes to the federal bench in Arkansas.
Calls should be placed from everywhere in the nation especially Texas!
