Republican Senators have recently tested positive for COVID-19. LPHS partner David Coale talked to KLIF Morning Radio on the impact that could have on the hearings for the next U.S. Supreme Court Judge. “The Constitution requires a majority of the Senate be present if it’s going to have a vote, and the Senate has never had rules about proxy voting. The Senate – you have to actually be there to cast your ballot, and so the three Senators are in fact out of commission when it comes time to have a vote on the judge, there could be a problem getting the necessary majority.”
In the same day, Mr. Coale addressed recent allegations against Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton to KTVT CBS Dallas. “It’s difficult to run any office with this kind of internal turmoil, much less one that’s under this kind of political scrutiny.”
