The 5th Circuit nominee faces the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Esoteric JeffSome negative context Jane Mayer would've given if Franken was a GOP'er: Franken would destroy nominees that came before him in the Judiciary Committee for jokes they made in the past. Remember him attacking Don Willett for saying he'd like to marry bacon?
