Dem Rep Hits Comrades Over “Religious Bigotry”

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii is chastising her fellow Democrats for targeting a judicial nominee over his faith. During a confirmation hearing, Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii and Kamala Harris of California grilled nominee for federal judge Brian Buescher over his membership in the Knights of Columbus and his Catholic faith. That was “religious bigotry,” Gabbard wrote in a Tuesday op-ed in The Hill.
