The abortion issue has put former Kansas Attorney General Steve Six’s nomination to an Appellate Court Judgeship on hold for the time being.
Vermont Democrat Patrick Leahy, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee announced today that the vote on Six’s nomination to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was being held over because some committee members want more discussion.
Anti-abortion groups are trying to prevent the appointment because of how criminal cases involving abortion providers were handled while he was the Kansas AG.
Six is certainly not getting any help from the two Kansas Senators – Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran. Both have publicly announced their opposition to Six becoming an Appellate Judge.
