For the second time, Cass Sunstein’s nomination as the administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs has been placed on “hold." This time by Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who says he is not convinced that Sunstein won’t push a radical animal rights agenda, including new restrictions on agriculture and even hunting.
Sunstein also faces criticism from others because of his animal rights position. David Martosko, director of the Center for Consumer Freedom, told Fox News' Glenn Beck that Cass Sunstein, the Harvard Law professor nominated by the president, is a "raving animal rights nut" and devout disciple of Peter Singer.
Singer, a bioethics professor at Princeton University, is a leader in the animal rights movement.
