Weekend Watchdog

Bill Scher

Every Friday in our Weekend Watchdog feature, we post suggested questions for scheduled Sunday guests. You can add your own questions in the comment thread. We’ll also include contact information for the shows, so we can let them know what their viewers want asked.

And on Sunday at 4 PM ET, tune in to Air America Radio’s “Seder on Sundays” program, where I’ll offer the Weekend Watchdog Wrap-Up.

For Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Penn. (CBS’ Face The Nation): This week, you suggested that a special prosecutor is needed to fully investigate the Prosecutor Purge because of conflicts of interest with Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and the White House.

However, when Judiciary Committee Democrats later called for a special prosecutor to investigate Gonzales’ apparent perjury, you criticized them as being “precipitous.”

Even though you said his testimony was “devastating. But so was the hearing before that, and so was the hearing before that.”

Are you truly willing to break party ranks, and back up your words with action?
