Shrinking Feingold

More Alito shrinkage

Using MS Word to summarize Russell Feingold's (D-WI) opening statement:
So you will obviously face tough questions here, Judge. In 1990, when the judge appeared before this committee in connection with his nomination to the court of appeals, Judge Alito promised to recuse himself from cases involving a mutual fund company with which he had substantial investments, Vanguard. Before we grant lifetime tenure to federal judges, and particularly, justices of the Supreme Court, we must make sure that they have the highest ethical standards. Mr. Chairman, if confirmed to the Supreme Court, Judge Alito is likely to have a profound impact on the lives of Americans for decades to come. Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
