GOP's dubious Alito supporter

The GOP is trotting out Cathy Fleming, the president-elect of the National Association of Women Lawyers, to ostensibly counter Alito's charmingly anti-woman voting record.

It's so anti-woman, in fact, that Fleming's organization had this to say about Alito, from Kos:


"The National Association of Women Lawyers ("NAWL"), Committee for the Evaluation of Supreme Court Nominees, has evaluated Judge Samuel Alito for the position of Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. The Committee has determined that Judge Alito is not qualified to serve on the Court from the perspective of laws and decisions regarding women's rights or that have a special impact on women."
