“I count one, two, three, four, five, six, seven Democrats here today. If anybody’s watching C-SPAN 3 or if the staffs would notify Republican senators, I could use some company,” said Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., the lone Republican for most of the Judiciary Committee’s Wednesday hearing on the U.S. attorneys’ firings.
Meanwhile, a House Judiciary subcommittee voted Thursday to seek contempt charges against former White House counsel Harriet Miers, who — following President Bush’s orders — refused to appear at a hearing on the firings.
