Is Toomey Being Hypocritical?


Sen. Toomey might be being a little hypocritical is in treatment of Secretary of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel. Earlier, he voted against cloture of the filibuster, but said, “The president deserves considerable latitude on appointing members of his cabinet and I have typically supported those nominees including those with whom I have significant policy disagreements.” However, he later signed the letter towards the President that asks that Sen. Hagel’s nomination be withdrawn. The letter cited Sen. Hagel’s policy stances as reason for withdrawal.

TKNN has reached out to the Senator’s office and we will bring you the response if we get one.
