Dr. Coburn Comments on Meeting with Supreme Court Nominee Harriet Miers
- U.S. Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) released the following statement today regarding his meeting with Harriet Miers:
"My meeting with Harriet Miers was cordial and another step in the Senate's advice and consent process. My standards for a nominee to the Supreme Court have not changed. A nominee should have personal integrity, a demonstrated commitment to judicial restraint and life experiences that have equipped them appropriately for a lifetime term on the bench. I look forward to joining my colleagues on the Judiciary Committee in exploring these issues with Ms. Miers during her confirmation hearing," Dr. Coburn said.
