Military Families Caution Senators on Kagan Nomination

Subject: txt lgl -
As Supreme Court-nominee Elena Kagan undergoes her first day of hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday a military families group is raising concerns about her fitness to serve on the high court.

The group, Military Families United, sent a letter on Friday to Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) citing Kagan’s actions to block military recruiters from Harvard Law School – when she was the dean there (2003-09)

“We find Ms. Kagan’s failure to offer support to our military in a time of war, and her willingness to defy federal law as troubling and appalling,”

said the letter signed by Robert Jackson, director of government relations for Military Families United.

Military Families United, a non-partisan non-profit group, is not opposing the Kagan nomination outright.
