Democrats Will Move to Vote on Sebelius

The Senate Finance Committee plans to vote April 21 on the nomination of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to lead the Health and Human Services Department, despite concerns voiced Friday by Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA), reports CQ Politics.

Grassley called it a "bombshell" that Sebelius initially understated campaign contributions she had received years ago from a doctor who performs abortions. He said the contributions have "raised a lot of concern among pro-life people," and added that he has not decided how he will vote on her nomination.
