Democratic senators on Dec. 14, called DeVos to ensure that a political action committee she controlled pays $5.3 million in fines and penalties owed for campaign finance violations in Ohio eight years ago. DeVos’ All Children Matter PAC broke Ohio election law by funneling $870,000 in contributions from its nationwide PAC to its Ohio affiliate in 2008. The state of Ohio later fined the group $5 million, but the fine has not yet been paid. (AP Photo/Paul Sancya, File)

At the confirmation hearing of Betsy DeVos, Senator Joe Lieberman said that she is the right choice for Education Secretary. He spoke of her state-level successes at the helm of the American Federation for Children, where he was a board member as a Democrat, and the bipartisan nature of much of what they accomplished.

He unequivocally endorsed her nomination, saying “Everything I have seen tells me that Betsy is ready to take on this assignment and do it very well.”
