Description

The controversy over President Clinton's nomination of Enrique Moreno's nomination to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has lead to the baladeering of Moreno in folk songs usually reserved for the legendary and the dead. Questions concerning whether his experience was adequate for such a high court were raised to Orrin Hatch, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Others contend that Moreno, a Harvard Law Graduate with the support of the El Paso Bar Association and congressman Silvestre Reyes (to name just two), is being rejected on other grounds. Gov. George W. Bush refused to intervene in the case, or even comment on it to the magazine.
