KAVANAUGH’S PARTISANSHIP AND UNTRUTHFULNESS MAKE HIM UNQUALIFIED FOR SCOTUS
Kavanaugh’s performance provides further conclusive evidence he’s unqualified for the Supreme Court. In his opening statement alone, he showed:
- volatile temperament
- belief in conspiracy theories
- clear partisan leanings
- tendency to lie
He was also insolent and disrespectful to Judiciary Committee Democrats—especially the women. His behavior would’ve been impermissible in his courtroom—huffing, squirming, grimacing at questions, interrupting questioners, shouting, refusing to answer or repeating irrelevant talking-points—and was a far cry from the neutral and impartial arbiter favoring no litigant or policy as he previously claimed to be.
Kavanaugh’s confirmation no longer rests on whether there’s sufficient proof of attempted rape. No matter what the FBI investigation uncovers, his poor self-control, belligerence, wild conspiracy claims, slippery partisanship, multiple falsehoods (large and small), and contempt for the Senate demonstrated he lacks the demeanor and temperament necessary to serve on the appellate court, let alone SCOTUS!
STOP the GOP Senators’ demonization and silencing of sexual assault victims!
Kavanaugh’s Nomination MUST BE DEFEATED!
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling to thank Senator _____ for his continued opposition to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh (for Senator Merkley: and for filing a federal lawsuit seeking Kavanaugh’s records and asking for an injunction to stop the confirmation vote). Kavanaugh’s performance on Thursday provides further conclusive evidence that he’s not qualified for a position on the Supreme Court. Please ask the Senator to do everything in his power to ensure that (1) the FBI be permitted to fully investigate all the sexual assault allegations, by talking not only to the survivors, but also to their supporting witnesses and Kavanaugh’s high school and college friends about allegations he drank excessively, exhibited sexually aggressive behavior towards women, and had a volatile temper and (2) there be no Senate vote until all Kavanaugh’s records are released and the Mueller investigation has cleared Trump. Thank you.”

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
. . . because he needs to hear from us every single day! Isn’t it outrageous that he’s not standing up for women’s rights? Let him know how you feel about that. He should be denouncing lying Brett KavaNOT as the worst possible choice for SCOTUS.
Why isn’t he?
Because he sold us out a long time ago!
