‘Wise Latina’ Gets OK From Senate Judiciary Committee, 1 Step Away from Supreme Court


Sonia Sotomayor is on her way to becoming a powerful robe wearer! The Senate Judiciary Committee today approved her nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court in a 13-6 vote, sending her to a full Senate vote as early as next week. Naturally, the committee’s top Republican, Sen. Jeff Sessions, did not throw her his support: “In speech after speech, year after year, Judge
Sotomayor set forth a fully formed judicial philosophy that conflicts with American philosophy of blind justice to the law.” This is the same man whose version of “blind justice” includes banning same-sex marriage.
