An open letter to the U.S. Senate

Don't let Trump and McConnell steal another seat on the bench!

9 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

As I mourn the loss of Justice Ginsburg, I am gravely concerned by the process to replace her. When Justice Scalia passed, eight months from an election, McConnell fabricated a policy that would prevent him from replacing a justice during an election year and refused to allow the Senate to fulfil its duties of advice and consent. Now, mere weeks from an election, McConnell claims he will ram through a Trump nominee. This cannot stand! Normally, I am all for legislative norms. When Scalia passed, I was fully in favor of advancing Garland's nomination. McConnell decided to eschew those norms in order to serve his personal desire for a super-conservative super-majority on the bench. The self-serving nature of his stance was blatantly obvious at the time, just as it is now. Stall. Refuse. Deflect. Whatever it takes to hold McConnell to his previous absurdity of convenience. Justice Ginsburg was in the majority of a number of cases that granted or protected rights that I hold dear. Let's honor her memory by preventing Trump and McConnell from replacing her with someone who will take America in a regressive direction and undo hard fought battles for civil rights!
