Conservative Group Launches Website Focused on Kagan, Wood, and Sotomayor

Posted: May 18, 2009 11:29 AM
The Judicial Confirmation Network, a conservative group that encourages the confirmation of judges who interpret the Constitution -- as opposed to "activist" judges -- has launched a new website, www.Obama'

The website focuses on Obama's three likely Supreme Court picks:

(Elena Kagan)

(Diane Wood


(Sonia Sotomayor)

Earlier today, JCN issued a press release, saying:
It is crucial that the records of Supreme Court potentials such as Kagan, Diane Wood, Sonia Sotomayor, and others be fully vetted and scrutinized so that Americans can have full transparency about them and so that Senators can make informed decisions in fulfilling their constitutional role of advice and consent.
According to the group's Executive Director Gary Marx, this debate is important to have because it will allow the American people to see where their U.S. Senators stand, and to "hold them accountable for their votes."
