Vitter Issues Statement on Groves Confirmation Vote

(Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Sen. David Vitter issued the following statement following Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s move to override Vitter’s hold on the nomination of Robert Groves to be the next U.S. Census Director.

“I have some serious concerns with Mr. Groves’ confirmation to be Census Director, and that’s why I placed a hold on his nomination.  Specifically, I wanted some written assurances from President Obama and his administration that sampling would not be used in the census taking process and that ACORN will have nothing to do with the census.  I’ve been trying to have a dialogue with the White House to help me address those two concerns, but they were unwilling to make those commitments,” said Vitter.
