Lieberman Tells TV He Supports Pro-Life Supreme Court

VP Nominee Says He Would Have Supported Bork For Court If Given The Chance.
Democratic Vice Presidential Candidate Joe Lieberman says that the “most likely would have voted” to confirm Robert Bork as U.S. Supreme Court justice, had he been in the U.S. Senate when Bork was nominated for the post by President Reagan back in the 1980s.

“Bob Bork was a professor of mine at law school,” said Lieberman, during an interview on This Week on ABC-TV on Sunday. “He’s a great man. I most likely would have voted to confirm him had I been in the Senate.”

Bork, who is against a woman’s right to choose and is virulently anti-abortion, may well have overturned the landmark Roe. v. Wade case which provides the right to choose for women. Lieberman was elected to his Senate post in 1988.

Since Democratic Presidential Candidate Al Gore supported the candidacy of Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas for the Supreme Court, and in the past has been known as an anti-choice politician, when he was in the Senate, the combination of Lieberman and Gore could be catastrophic for women voters, according to analysts. “Politicians who speak with forked tongues and metaphorical Pinnochio noses ought to be brought to account,” says Ralph Nader, the Green Party nominee for president, during a TV interview. Nader also said that President Clinton has disgraced the Office of the President of the United States, due to his conviction for contempt of court for lying under oath. “There’s an ethical, moral movement to put people back in charge,” said Nader.
