Abuse & Amy Klobuchar

October 13, 2020

Two years ago, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) was the object of critics who argued that the Senator abused her staff.

If you work on Capitol Hill or in policy organizations in the Washington, DC area, you’ll hear complaints that some Members require staff to do laundry, follow extreme rules for handling food, or baby-sit their children.

Since then I have watched Amy Klobuchar’s actions to see if her past abuse of her staff portends to other abuses. Today in nomination hearings, Sen. Klobuchar was abusive by asking dozens of questions of interpretation of law of Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coner Barrett that given their nature could not be answered.

If so, why ask them? And if Sen. Klobuchar has a judicial philosophy, why not state it?
