Sen. Alexander to NLRB members: Resign

Sen. Lamar Alexander, Tennessee Republican, has called on two of three National Labor Relations Board members wrongly appointed by President Obama during a Senate recess flap to resign from their seats.

"I'm here today to call for Sharon Block and Richard Griffin, the two members of the [NLRB] who were unconstitutionally appointed by the president, to resign their positions," Mr. Alexander said, in Monday floor remarks.

His statements stem from a federal appeals court ruling that found Mr. Obama violated the Constitution with the January 2012 appointments he claimed were made during a Senate recess. The Senate, however, still conducted business and never formally declared recess.

The NLRB, meanwhile, maintains the appointments will be upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court, according to a report in The Hill.
