First a bit of background. Goodwin Liu is the radical left wing law professor abortionist, whom President Obama nominated to the 9th Circuit Court. Liu is a Social Justice proponent and has also been aligned with La Raza.
All seven Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee requested to delay hearings for Goodwin Liu due to his failure to complete 117 items on his Senate questionnaire.
A reasonable request for reasonable people, I am sure it was met with a reasonable response.
Ah, who am I kidding ... we are dealing with Patrick "Leaky" Leahy here. To wit:
"At the time of Professor Liu’s twice-rescheduled hearing, Committee members will have had more than seven weeks to review the nominee’s record, and two weeks to review the materials submitted to the Committee on April 5."
"I see no reason to further delay this nominee’s opportunity to appear before the Committee and respond to the questions its members may have," he added, chastising Republicans for refusing to "put political rancor aside."
Yep. Nothing to see here. Move along now.

P.S. I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that Sen. Leahy has a viable Republican challenger this year. Len Britton ... pass it on.
