We’ve teamed up with to bring you live video of the hearing (plus Twitter updates from Stephanie and David Corn in the crawl). Also check out the live blog below the video. If you missed any of the first three days, check out the wrap-ups: Pride and Prejudice (Monday), Where Did Sotomayor’s Empathy Go? (Tuesday), and Sotomayor Slips Up (Wednesday). Plus, video highlights from the week so far: Sonia knows nunchucks, Al Franken’s flop, ‘Splainin to do, and Al Franken’s Perry Mason joke.






We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
