Objectivity 3.3 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.6

While serving in the Senate, Mr. Biden filibustered the nomination of Janice Rogers Brown for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Mr. Biden voted in 2003 and 2005 to block efforts by Senate Republicans to confirm judge Brown. Fox News host Dana Perino, who served in the Bush White House, asked, “if Democrats really wanted to see a Black woman elevated to the Supreme Court, why did they block Janice Rogers Brown back during the Bush administration?”
