The nomination hearing for labor attorney John J. Sullivan this afternoon was a veritable lovefest as Senate Rules Committee Chairman Chuck Schumer praised Sullivan and the two Republicans who attended the hearing, ranking member Bob Bennett and Saxby Chambliss, indicated they would support Sullivan’s nomination.
The approximately 20 minute hearing adjourned after brief questioning from Schumer and Bennett about Sullivan’s background and criticism from some in the so-called “reform” community about Sullivan’s criticism of aspects of McCain-Feingold while representing the Service Employees International Union.
