Washington, DC – Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL-21) issued the following statement after Judge Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court by the U.S. Senate:

 

“This is a sad, dark day for our nation. Despite multiple disturbing allegations of sexual misconduct and assault including the credible testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Republicans, after a phony investigation, confirmed Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.

This sends a horrible message to survivors of sexual violence that their experiences and voices don’t matter. But that’s not all. Republicans have confirmed someone who proved himself unfit for the highest court in the land by raging partisan conspiratorial accusations at Democrats during his hearing and even threatening payback.

With all this said, the ultimate insult to the American people is that Republicans are sending to the United States Supreme Court a man who was nominated by Donald Trump to overturn Roe v. Wade and protect the president from criminal investigation. Judge Kavanaugh’s extreme views threaten to roll back decades of hard-fought freedoms and will affect the lives of our sons and daughters for generations.”
