Key Excerpt, Witness Testimony: Bloomberg on Sotomayor's Ties to PRLDEF
Courtesy of CQ Transcriptions
NEW YORK CITY MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG: I just want to add a caution against those who would suggest that Judge Sotomayor's service to the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund is somehow a negative.
That's an organization that is well respected for its civil rights work in New York City, and although I certainly have not always seen eye-to-eye on every issue with them, there is no question that they make countless contributions to our city. And Judge Sotomayor should be based solely on her record, and not on the record of -- of others in the group.
So thank you very much for the opportunity to testify. And I urge you to confirm Sonia Sotomayor as a justice of the United States Supreme Court.
