Hotlined FEC Vote in Jeopardy

Obamas decision to block the vote marks the first time a Democrat has pledged to return McConnells fire in the standoff. Last week, McConnell pledged to hold up all four nominations unless they are confirmed as a group, a plan that has few anecdotes.

In a recent statement, Obama called von Spakovsky an unacceptable nominee. I strongly oppose the nomination of Mr. Hans von Spakovsky to serve a full term at the Federal Election Commission, Obama said in a recent statement. The FEC needs strong, impartial leadership that will promote integrity in our election system. Hans von Spakovsky is not the right person for this job, and I call on President Bush to send Congress a new nominee.
