No Rubber Stamp on Supreme Court Vote

  • Week of September 23, 2018
This is 2018, the era of the Women’s March and Wonder Woman, #metoo and #timesup. This is not a time for a male-dominated Senate Judiciary Committee to do a shell-game-rush-job on investigating allegations of sexual assault against a man who aims to occupy a lifetime position on the highest court in the land (a Court that stands to cast judgement on myriad issues that will impact the lives of American women in major ways). Not only must the allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh be fully investigated by the FBI before he is confirmed, Professor Ford must also be given reasonable time in which to provide her testimony to the Senate and to the American people - and that testimony must be given real (not rubber stamp) consideration in the confirmation process.
“Senate Republicans are attempting to make Dr. Blasey Ford testify on just a few days’ notice — without having the FBI follow up on her allegations and provide a report first. This strikes us as simply a check-the-box exercise in a rush to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”

- said a letter written to the President this week, spearheaded by Sens. Kamala D. Harris (CA) and Amy Klobuchar (MN)

Indeed it does. All-of-us must continue to demand a full investigation and testimony before any vote, period.

Here’s how:

Then call your senators and ask them to postpone the vote on Judge Kavanaugh because of the recent accusations of assault.

Here’s a script for you to use: “I'm calling/writing because I believe Senator _______ must speak up in support of postponing the Senate Judiciary Committee’s vote to promote Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. A thorough investigation of Professor Jones’ allegations of attempted rape must be performed before the Senate grants him a lifetime job.
