Sen. Lautenberg Blasts Buchanan’s Complaint About Jews On Supreme Court


U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) responded to commentator and former Republican Presidential candidate Pat Buchanan’s complaint today that “if Kagan is confirmed, Jews, who represent less than 2 percent of the U.S. population, will have 33 percent of the Supreme Court seats”:

“It is outrageous that Mr. Buchanan is using Elena Kagan’s religion as kindling to enflame opposition to her nomination to the Supreme Court,” stated Lautenberg. “Elena Kagan was chosen by President Obama because of her ability and knowledge, and Mr. Buchanan’s comments undermine her significant legal achievements. It sounds like Mr. Buchanan longs for the days when religious quotas kept people out of high-ranking positions in government.”
