An open letter to the U.S. Senate

Supreme Court Justice

13 so far! Let’s get to 25 signers!

Dear Senator, After the precedent set by the Senate during President Obama's term, I am strongly opposed to any nominee to the Supreme Court being confirmed before the swearing in of the president in 2021. When Justice Antonin Scalia passed away eleven months before the 2016 presidential election, Mitch McConnell said “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.” Now, less than two months before the presidential election and within hours of the announcement of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing, McConnell is contradicting his 2016 statements. The American people deserve fairness and consistency. There is no way for us to have trust in our representatives if their statements and actions change so dramatically. McConnell set a precedent in 2016 that must be honored now. As he said himself, “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice.” We deserve to have a voice. Please do not allow the voices of your constituents to be silenced.
