Love is in the air when Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus nominated Melodee Hanes for U.S. Attorney. He also cleared allegations that they are having an illegal affair. According to the senator, they were already separated from their spouses when they started dating in the summer of 2008.
The Montana Democrat also said he sees nothing wrong with the nomination because Melodee Hanes is highly qualified. As prosecutor, she has tried over 100 jury trials already and is a respected authority when it comes to child abuse prosecution. Baucus has been helping Democrats to expand their health care. Baucus nominated Melodee Hanes for the post in March. However, she withdrew from the nominations stating that there are other opportunities she couldnâ€™t allow to miss.
