Statement from John Kerry on Bush's Recess Appointment of Charles Pickering

Location: Unknown

January 16, 2004

For Immediate Release

"Last year on Martin Luther King's birthday, George Bush fought to roll back affirmative action. It is outrageous that yet again, one day after laying a wreath on Martin Luther King's grave, George W. Bush is unilaterally installing a man on a federal appeals court who advocated tirelessly on behalf of a cross-burner. Yet again, this Bush Administration is ignoring the will of the people and threatening civil rights on behalf of right wing ideologues. We need a President who respects the people and fights for equal opportunity for every American."
