An open letter to the U.S. Senate

To preserve the Court's legitimacy, deny Trump's nominee a vote

9 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

The process by which the Republicans have put forward a nominee to the Supreme Court, after thwarting President Obama's selection in 2016, is so blatantly corrupt that confirming this nominee will destroy the Court's legitimacy. If Amy Coney Barrett were appointed, a majority of the Justices of the Supreme Court will have been appointed by men who won the presidency despite losing the popular vote. And none of these appointments have displayed the moderation one might expect of an executive with so questionable a mandate -- all represent extreme right-wing views not shared by the majority of Americans (or Pennsylvanians). The hearing that is taking place right now to discuss Barrett's nomination is, as far as I am concerned, wholly illegitimate. If Republicans are successful in adding another kangaroo to the Supreme Court, I will expect my elected representatives to rectify that situation by any Constitutional means as soon as possible.
