Julie Myers Nomination NOT ON HOLD: NYDaily News Article FALSE

By Debbie Schlussel
Yet another illustration of the “don’t believe everything you read” axiom–and a confirmation of the solid stories and instincts we express here:
Earlier today, we wrote about today’s New York Daily News story claiming that Senator Susan Collins of Maine a hold on the nomination of Julie L. Myers to become Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security over ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).
We were skeptical and wrote:
But don’t get your hopes up about this nomination being tabled.
We doubted the story because we knew that Julie Myers and liberal Senator Collins had a meeting, last week, announced in Thursday’s Congressional Quarterly.
Now a Collins staffer has confirmed that the NY Daily News story is a lie. In fact, as we wrote earlier today, Collins was NOT on her honeymoon but DID, in fact, meet with Myers on Friday.
The “hold” on her nomination was–as we indicated–wishful thinking because, as a key Collins staffer stated, “Senator Collins met with Julie Myers on Friday and Ms. Myers was able to address some of her concerns.”
What about ICE agents’ concerns?!
