Regarding Senate confirmations of the President-Elects candidates for Cabinet positions …
Shouldn’t Senators be required to disqualify themselves from making determinations when there is a potential conflict of interest, just like the requirement for recusing Judges?
Judges accept zero cash and they still have this requirement.
Politicians accept boatloads of money, and then get to pass judgment on the worthiness of the candidate?
I vote “No!” to allowing this practice to continue. What’s do you think?
If you response is also, “No!” let your Senator and elected representatives hear your opinion.
And, no, it might not make a difference this time, but if we keep hammering away … our time will come.
