Support for Bolton Appears to be Weakening

From AP News:

"Republican Senator Lincoln Chafee is ``less likely'' to support John Bolton's nomination to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations because of the allegations he mistreated subordinates, a spokesman for Chafee said.

Chafee's vote against Bolton on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, combined with the united opposition of Democrats, would leave Republicans at least one vote short of recommending his nomination to the full Senate. "

Chuck Hagel of Nebraska, another Republican on the committee, yesterday called the allegations against Bolton ``serious'' and said he might not vote for Bolton on the Senate floor.
Mike Buttry, a spokesman for Hagel, didn't return calls for comment today.
Democrats want the committee to take a fresh look at claims Bolton, 56, bullied intelligence analysts who didn't agree with his views, jeopardizing the integrity of U.S. information gathering. Former State Department official Carl Ford last week told the committee that Bolton in 2002 sought to get two intelligence analysts who refused to sign off on a speech he was preparing on Cuba's weapons capability fired.
