"This truly is astounding. It carries the plan to make a mockery of the whole confirmation process to an altogether new level. To say she can’t answer whether intimidating voters at the polls is illegal is like refusing to answer whether murder is illegal. Disgusting."
Senator Whitehouse exposed the role of dark money in judicial nominations and other legal matters including amicus briefs. I was horrified and I hope you were too.
Please donate any monies you have received from the Federalist Society to appropriate charities and make a public statement repudiating them.
Everything about the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation hearings reeks of corruption and hypocrisy.
I expect you to speak out against the process with force and gravity and to lobby your colleagues.
Stop allowing the GOP to dismantle our living democracy with a bonesaw. Don't think that getting away with this could happen with no consequences: Americans have had enough, we are voting already and we are voting in droves.
