League Urges Senators to vote NO on Kavanaugh

Judge Does Not Possess Fair and Unbiased Judicial Temperament

Washington, DC – The League of Women Voters President Chris Carson and CEO Virginia Kase issued the following joint statement:

"We urge the Senate to reject Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination.

"Judge Kavanaugh has shown the country that he does not possess fair and unbiased judicial temperament. Indeed, he engaged in unprovoked, partisan attacks, and treated United States Senators—the people conducting his job interview—with shocking disrespect. Senators have the right to ask questions of nominees. In fact, it is their responsibly to ask them on behalf of the American people.

"In addition, troubling allegations about his past and misleading if not untruthful testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee cast further doubt on his judicial credibility. Alexander Hamilton wrote in The Federalist Papers that “all judges who may be appointed by the United States are to hold their offices during good behavior.” That’s not what we saw from Judge Kavanaugh during the confirmation process.

 "We urge Senators to vote NO on Kavanaugh."
