Uh, oh. Harriet Miers and the Truth Fairy
The Los Angeles Times reports that "Supreme Court nominee Harriet E. Miers told a conservative group in 1989 that she opposed abortion and would 'actively support' legislation to severely restrict the procedure should the Supreme Court overturn Roe vs. Wade." So this was the confidential information that Dr. James Dobson said explained his support of Miers' nomination.
Earlier this month, Dobson told Focus on the Family radio listeners "When you know some of the things that I know--that I probably shouldn't know--you will understand why I have said, with fear and trepidation, that I believe Harriet Miers will be a good justice." He was referring, of course, to his telephone conversation with Karl Rove, during which Rove somehow assured Dobson that Miers was great for conservatives. Since the papers released by the White House to the Judiciary Committee contained Miers 1989 comments, it's not a stretch to imagine their inclusion in the Dobson/Rove conversation.
