Specter: ‘I’m Opposed’ to Dawn Johnsen

By

In language that may or not have been cleverly chosen, Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, the newest member of the Democratic party, told reporters moments ago that he remains opposed to Dawn Johnsen, the Obama administration’s pick to head the Office of Legal Counsel.

Can we take that to mean that he won’t vote for Johnsen? Maybe. But he didn’t come out to say specifically that that’s the case — as he did when he very clearly voiced his intent to vote against the Employee Free Choice Act moments before.

Johnsen has made headlines for uniting conservatives behind what they consider her radical support for abortion rights — a controversy over which even the pro-choice Specter drilled Johnsen earlier this year during her confirmation hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
