Bill Pryor is now Judge Pryor

Bypassing Senate Democrats who have stalled his judicial nominations, President Bush installed Alabama Attorney General William Pryor on the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday. ...

Pryor, 41, is a founder of the Republican Attorneys General Association, which raises money for GOP attorneys general. At his confirmation hearing, he said he had not lobbied tobacco companies or companies under investigation by his office, but Democrats said they had documents showing Pryor may have been involved in some fund-raising activities. -- Bush Sidesteps Congress, Installs Judge (AP)

The New York Times and the Washington Post have small articles on this appointment, but do not cover the campaign finance issue. I posted several items on this last year. Use the "search" feature on the right side of the main page to find them.
