Do Dems Have Secret Alito Plan?

The Drudge Report is carrying a developing story about a Democratic plan to “destroy” Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito.

“THE DRUDGE REPORT has learned from exclusive sources that Senate Democrats have put into place a plan that includes one last push to take down the nomination of Judge Samuel A. Alito as he heads into his confirmation hearing next week…. MORE…”

At the moment there is no additional information, but as soon as we learn more, we will pass it along.

UPDATE — 5:49 p.m.: Upon further thought, I can’t imagine what Democrats would have on Alito at this late stage, but certainly anything is possible. But chances are, at least in my opinion, that any news that breaks late on a Friday afternoon will not turn into a bombshell to topple a Supreme Court nominee.

UPDATE II — 6:08 p.m.: Drudge just updated the site. He now carries this information: "Senate Democrats intend to zero in on Alito’s alleged membership to an organization, a witness will claim, that was sexist, racist and out-of-the-mainstream on a variety of issues… MORE…" Stay tuned.
