Just Gets Better And Better

From Raw Story:
Miers gives wrong dates in questionnaire; Firm was sued during period omitted

President Bush's nominee to the Supreme Court, Harriet Miers, provided erroneous and incomplete information to the Senate Judiciary Committee about her membership on a Board of Directors for a real estate investment company, RAW STORY has learned.

Miers also neglected to mention a class action lawsuit that accused the firm, Capstead Mortgage, of violating federal securities laws. The suit, which was later dismissed, came during the period Miers failed to include in her responses to the Senate questionnaire....

....The embattled nominee is already under fire from members of her own party. Senators from both parties have questioned other answers she gave on her application, saying that her responses were "insufficient." One Democrat went so far as to say her answers "range from incomplete to insulting."....

....The President's nominee was also managing partner of a Texas lawfirm during a period when it shelled out $22 million to settle a suit which alleged "it aided a client in defrauding investors."

Oh lordy lordy lordy... This is getting sad. The distraction nominee is becoming a book end for the indictments, but not a distraction. Running out of popcorn, gonna get some jalapeno poppers for the second half of this freakshow.
