Kuster statement on Senate vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court
(Concord, NH) – Today, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) released the following statement on the Senate confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
“I was disappointed today by the Senate’s vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. Since his nomination, I have been concerned by Judge Kavanaugh’s positions on issues like health care, a woman’s right to choose, and executive power that appear to be outside of mainstream judicial philosophy. More recently, Judge Kavanaugh’s response to the allegations of sexual misconduct by Christine Blasey Ford and other women revealed that he has neither the temperament nor impartiality required of a Supreme Court justice. Every survivor deserves the chance to be heard and the charges against Judge Kavanaugh merited a more extensive and deliberate FBI investigation than what transpired. I remain proud of women and men like Dr. Ford who speak up to share their stories of sexual harassment and violence.”
