WASHINGTON -- April 25 -- News Advisory:
- Former Vice President Gore to Deliver Major Policy Speech: Republican Attempt to Force Judicial Nominations a "Poison Pill for American Democracy"
- Speech Accompanied by MoveOn PAC Rallies in Over Forty States, TV Ad of Stampeding Elephants
WHAT: MoveOn PAC Media Advisory for Noon, Wednesday, April 27th
Former Vice President Al Gore, in his first major policy address since the election, will address MoveOn PAC members about Republican attempts to appoint radical judges to courts across the country. The speech, coming on what could be the eve of Majority Leader Bill Frist's attempt to break over 200 years of tradition and eliminate the filibuster of judicial nominations, will keynote a day of action that will include rallies in over forty states and release of a new television ad.
Gore will lay out the role of the filibuster and its important role in American democracy. Furthermore, he will explain how this latest move by the Republican party is an historic threat to the health and vitality of America and could perhaps be the beginning of the end of meaningful debate in the U.S. Senate.
