Oh dear -- Miers nomination makes Concerned Women for America feel jittery and a little offended

CWA: What We Need to Know About Harriet Miers 10/10/2005

Washington, DC – Concerned Women for America (CWA) has released a memorandum explaining its evaluation of information about Harriet Miers, President Bush’s nominee to succeed Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. The memo explains why CWA is unable to endorse the nomination at this time based on current information about Miss Miers. It is available on CWA’s Web site,

“Nothing we have seen or heard establishes Miss Miers' knowledge of and experience in constitutional law. Much is made of her leadership within the American Bar Association, an organization that is hardly known for opposing the ‘living theory’ of constitutional interpretation and judicial activism,” LaRue concluded.

"While we share Miss Miers’ evangelical faith, we find the continual emphasis on it by her supporters to be inappropriate and patronizing,” LaRue said. “It offends the Constitution.”
