Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA), last night on Hardball:

All we said — and I can — you can interview a bunch of Democrats who joined with me in the Senate. All we wanted was a new trial, a de novo hearing to bring in what was a lot of evidence that was not considered originally by the original trial court…The judge did not do what was expressly required in the statute. That is a problem. Judges should abide by the law. They`re not above the law.

From the discussion of the bill passed by Congress on the Senate floor:

SEN. BILL FRIST: Nothing in the current bill or its legislative history mandates a stay… this bill does not change current law under which a stay is discretionary.
