What the heck, you'll do what you want anyway.

Senator Nelson and Alberto Gonzales

Posted by Dan Draney on June 10, 2005

We got a letter from Senator Ben Nelson this week, thanking us for writing to him about the confirmation of Alberto Gonzales as US Attorney General. The letter explains that after careful consideration of the nomination, including extensive one-on-one discussion with Mr. Gonzales, Senator Nelson voted for the confirmation.

The humorous part of the letter is that it acknowledged our opposition to Mr. Gonzales’ confirmation, while we actually supported the nomination. We’re not quite certain that we actually expressed our opinion on the matter to Senator Nelson, but if so, it would definitely have been pro-confirmation.

So, thank you, Sen. Nelson, for your vote to confirm. You might want to have someone check out the filing system in the office, though.
