No Supreme Court Nominees Before the November 6 Election!

Trump’s nominee for  the vacant seat on the U.S. Supreme Court is a person hand-picked by the ultra right Federalist Society who is the subject of a credible allegation of sexual assault - as last week's Senate hearings proved. The Republicans have shown they are willing to do anything to get this man on the Court. Confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh will result in a majority of justices on the Court who are ready to rubber stamp Trump’s agenda. This will threaten basic civil rights that are now enshrined in settled law. The make-up of the Supreme Court will have a direct impact on the lives of all Americans for generations to come.

Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have  said “there is no legitimate reason for the Senate to rush this nomination and fail to perform its constitutional duty...when the President, who faces significant legal jeopardy, chose the one candidate who has consistently and clearly expressed doubt as to whether a sitting president can be investigated or indicted for criminal wrongdoing."

The height of hypocrisy is shown by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who rushed the approval process, when he refused to allow President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee to be heard in an election year. We must tell our Members of Congress to vote no on Trump’s nominee. 

Call, text and fax your own MOCs. Above all, for this strategy to work, Democrats must take control of the Senate in November, so it is crucial that we get out the vote!

SCRIPT: My name is XXX and my address and zip code is XXX. I am a proud member of Palm Beach Indivisibles. Brett Kavanaugh should not be confirmed to the Supreme Court. I demand that you not consider any Supreme Court nominee until after questions about illegal conduct of Kavanaugh and Trump are resolved.
