After using the “blue slip process” many times to his advantage, Senator Reid, again shows the height of his hypocrisy in asking Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Patrick Leahy to bypass the process.

From the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

STEPHENS WASHINGTON BUREAU WASHINGTON – Sen. Harry Reid said Wednesday he is seeking a way around opposition to place Clark County judge Elissa Cadish on the federal court in Nevada.

Reid said he plans to ask Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Patrick Leahy to hold a confirmation hearing on Cadish, circumventing objections from fellow Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada.

“It’s an emergency vacancy,” Reid said in explaining his effort. “There has yet to be anyone I’ve heard who doesn’t think she is qualified. I’ve picked somebody who I believe is the most qualified district judge we have in the state.”

Cadish, a Clark County district judge, was nominated by President Barack Obama in February to become U.S. district judge in the state. But her confirmation bid hit a snag after the discovery of a 2008 questionnaire that raised questions about her position on gun rights.

Heller, a Republican, has come out against Cadish and has declined to sign a “blue slip,” the paperwork that home state senators traditionally provide to the Judiciary Committee authorizing the panel to schedule a hearing and advance the nomination.

Reid, the Senate majority leader, said he plans to ask Leahy to bypass the blue slip process in this case and move forward with the Cadish nomination. He said the two could meet Thursday.
