Specter, Kennedy clash during second day of Alito confirmation hearings - Yahoo! News
WASHINGTON (C ourt TV) %u2014 The political battle over Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito took a dramatic turn Wednesday when Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) broke decorum and demanded that the judiciary committee chairman subpoena key documents about Alito's past membership in a controversial conservative organization.
"I think we are entitled to this information. It deals with the fundamental issue of equality and discrimination," Kennedy said. "And if you're going to rule it out of order, I want to get a vote on that here on our committee."
