Miers’ Boyfriend Endorses Miers

This morning, the White House dispatched Texas Supreme Court Justice Nathan Hecht to defend Harriet Miers’ nomination to the Supreme Court. On CBS’ “Early Show” Hecht showered Miers with praise:

STORM: In your mind, is she the most qualified person for the job?

HECHT: I think so. And I think what people are overlooking at this point — and will come out as the process winds its way along — is the tremendous record that she’s had of true accomplishment…

Hecht isn’t exactly the most objective judge of Miers’ qualifications. The AP reports, “Over the years, Miers has dated Nathan Hecht, a justice on the Texas Supreme Court who has known her since the 1970s.”
