Protecting a Precious, Almost Sacred Right: The John R. Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) grilled Dale Ho, President Joe Biden’s judicial nominee to serve on the Southern District of New York, during a Senate hearing on Wednesday over past remarks that he made regarding conservatives.
“I would note, just sitting here, this may be a first in that you have tweeted attacks at multiple members of this committee including Senator Lee, Senator Cotton, Senator Blackburn, Senator Cornyn, and far from being intemperate statements when you were a teenager, most of these tweets occurred last year,” Cruz said. “So in the last 12 months, you have engaged—or the last about 18 months—you have engaged in partisan attacks on multiple members of this committee.”
Sen. Ted Cruz to Dale Ho, Biden judicial nominee, about him writing, “As a colleague of mine asked me over lunch recently, ‘Dale, Do you do this because you want to help people or because you hate conservatives?’”
Ho downplays his writings saying he made the comments in church.
