DAYS UNTIL BALLOTS DUE: 39
LIGHT UP THE PHONES!
KEEP KAVA-BULLY OFF THE SUPREME COURT!
“Indelible in [my] hippocampus is the laughter. The uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense.”
Yesterday we saw an entitled, white frat-boy-bully repeatedly assert his “privilege” as he angrily yelled and rudely talked over female Senators seeking to get to the truth. It should have never come to this. The hearing was a sham. The GOP allowed only one of the three women who have credibly accused Kavanaugh to testify. They refused to subpoena Mark Judge, Kavanaugh’s buddy. They refused to ask the FBI to re-open its background investigation. They still haven’t gotten the most important documents from the National Archives.
Anyone who watched Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testify knows that she was telling the truth. She came forward on her own, before Kavanaugh’s nomination, to tell her story at great risk and cost to herself.
We must keep this unfit bully off SCOTUS. He:
- Is credibly accused by multiple women of sexual assault
- Has repeatedly lied under oath
- Has abused alcohol
- Demonstrated at the hearing that he cannot control himself
- Came out as a GOP partisan, not an unbiased judge
- Was nominated as a “get-out-of-jail-free card” by Trump, named as a co-conspirator in Michael Cohen’s crimes
CALL! CALL! CALL!
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling about the Kavanaugh nomination. What we saw yesterday was the testimony of a very credible witness versus a bully. We can’t allow Kavanaugh to join SCOTUS. In fact, he should be impeached from the DC Circuit Court. Kavanaugh is unfit for any public office. Please do everything you can to ensure that there is no Senate vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination until the allegations against him have been investigated, all the records are released, and the Mueller investigation has cleared Trump. Thank you.”

**ACTION TWO: STAND WITH WOMEN IN OREGON**
Women’s rights are also under attack in Oregon. The only state without any limits on Roe has on November’s ballot a constitutional amendment (Measure 106) that would eliminate reproductive healthcare coverage from insurance policies covering low-income Oregonians and public employees, such as teachers, nurses, and firefighters. Commit to vote NO on 106 https://nocutstocare.com/ and make sure all your friends and family do likewise.
**ACTION THREE: ELECT A NEW CONGRESS, BE ACTIVE, BE A VOTER, SAVE AMERICA**
