The Hill: A Democratic lawmaker is accusing the Obama administration of being “dishonest” in the handling of two controversial judicial nominations. Georgia Rep. David Scott (D) ratcheted up his rare attack on the White House for striking a deal with the Peach State’s two GOP senators. The agreement is aimed at moving a slate of six judicial nominees out of the Senate.
Asked if the administration had been honest in its handling of the process, Scott told The Hill, “I think they’ve been very dishonest in how they’ve been handling this. I represent Georgia and we have been disrespected in this.”
