Specter on Miers?¢â??¬â??¢ Donations: ?¢â??¬??It?¢â??¬â??¢s Americana?¢â??¬â??¢

Just returned from the U.S. Capitol, where I asked Senate Judiciary Chairman Arlen Specter (R.-Pa.)—the last question he took at the press conference, by the way—about Harriet Miers’ contributions to Democrats Al Gore and Lloyd Bentsen.

Here’s what Specter said:
