Akaka won't back Alito filibuster

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) _ Hawaii Senator Daniel Akaka says he opposes blocking a vote on Samuel Alito's nomination to serve on the U-S Supreme Court.

Akaka said today he wouldn't support a filibuster because the Senate has heard Alito's positions in confirmation hearings.

Akaka says he would vote against confirming Alito to the court because he has concerns about whether Alito would uphold anti-discrimination laws allowed under the Constitution.

Akaka also says he's worried Alito would work to give the president more power.
