I urge you to oppose the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States.
I remain concerned by Judge Kavanaugh’s record on the Fourth Amendment, an important protection that has been eroded at a time of its increasing importance, the digital era.
Furthermore, although the truth of Dr. Ford’s allegation is unlikely ever to be either conclusively proven or disproven, Judge Kavanaugh’s response has been disturbing. Specifically, it seems obvious that he has recently lied about the extent of his drinking and associated elements of his lifestyle in high school and college, and we have indications that some of that behavior has extended into his adult life.
Confirming a judge with a disregard for the truth would tarnish the Court; the Senate; the cause of limited, accountable government; and, most importantly, the interest of justice. There are many well-qualified jurists who could take his place and who would likely make a lasting, positive impression on American jurisprudence. Judge Kavanaugh should not be elevated to a position on the highest court in the land.
