Brickbat: Are You Now or Have You Ever Been?


Kamala Harris

U.S. Senators Kamala Harris and Mazie Hirono, both Democrats, say they are concerned that Brian Buescher, who has been nominated by President Donald Trump to a federal district court in Nebraska, is a member of a "extreme" group: the Knights of Columbus. The Knights of Columbus are a Catholic fraternal service organization and charity known to many for the colorful hats members wear. But Harris and Hirono say they have taken "extreme" positions such as defending traditional marriage and opposing abortion.
