More Roberts papers found at Reagan library

More Roberts papers found at Reagan library. Is is very rare for Presidential libraries to be in the news this much. More on the Roberts paper trail.

From the site:

A week before televised confirmation hearings on Supreme Court nominee John G. Roberts Jr., the Reagan Presidential Library said Tuesday that it had discovered a potentially large number of documents related to Roberts that had been inadvertently missed during previous searches of the nominee's files.

The library near Simi Valley, Calif., which earlier had acknowledged that it had misplaced a Roberts file on affirmative action that is still missing, said it would bring in extra researchers to expedite a review of the documents before the Senate hearings, which are to begin Sept. 6.
"This discovery comes late in this process and after requests from Democratic members of the Judiciary Committee for information on Judge Roberts' record have been delayed and denied," said Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy.
