NARAL on Boggs Vote Postponement by Senate Judiciary Committee
WASHINGTON - Today, Senator Leahy announced the the Judiciary Committee was moving forward on confirmation process for Georgia judicial nominees with the notable exclusion of Michael Boggs.
Said NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue:
"Michael Boggs not getting a vote this week in the Senate Judiciary Committee reaffirms his questionable record and inconsistent statements. As we have said all along, he has demonstrated a frightening pattern of disregarding civil rights and the fundamental equality of women and LGBT people that should disqualify him for a lifetime appointment to the federal bench. He still needs to answer for this history, the same history he campaigned on when he was running to be a judge. We will continue our efforts to make sure the committee, the full Senate, and the public are aware of Boggs' past and to defeat his confirmation.”
