Media Advisory: Delgaudio to Hold Capitol Hill Press Conference on Miers Lobbying Efforts
Washington, DC Public Advocate President Eugene Delgaudio will be on Capitol Hill tomorrow, Thursday, October 6, 2005 to announce the group's grassroots lobbying plans regarding the nomination of Harriot Miers. The plan will revolve around getting Conservative Senators, especially members of the Judiciary Committee to ask the nominee the tough questions necessary to ensure that she is a judicial originalist before they commit to support her nomination.
Delgaudio Press Conference on Miers Nomination:
When: Thursday, October 6, 2005 at 11:00 AM
Where: Outside of the Dirksen Senate Office Building at the corner of 1st St and Constitution, NE
Who: Eugene Delgaudio, President of Public Advocate of the United States, which has over 50,000 members and was the first conservative organization to come out publicly against the nomination.
Why: Public Advocate of the United States believes that only proven originalists, who will faithfully interpret the law according to the meaning of the founders and not legislate from the bench, should be appointed and confirmed to seats on the Supreme Court. Because of the failure of all Republican presidents in the last half century to consistently appoint originalists to the Court, a nominee's judicial philosophy cannot be taken on trust alone. Without proof of such a philosophy, the group will encourage conservative Senators to vote no on the nomination.
Delgaudio will make a brief statement and then be available to the media for questions.
