Harriet we hardly knew yee.
- Miers was suspended from the DC bar for non-payment of dues.
- Miers was suspended from the Texas bar for non-payment of dues.
- Miers repeatedly had tax liens placed on property she owned in Texas for non-payment of fines and fees.
- Miers received 10 times the market value for a small piece of land she controlled from the state of Texas, awarded by a panel stacked with friends and allies. A mediator ordered Miers to repay $26,000 but she has failed to do so.
These incidents take on added significant because – since Miers doesn’t have any judicial experience – Bush is selling Miers’s nomination to the court, in large part, on her “character.”
The right wing now has up a withdraw miers webpage http://www.withdrawmiers.org/
