Controvers­ial process

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - FROM THE COVER -

There are two an­swers to the ques­tion posed by Chronicle jour­nal­ist Joe Garo­foli’s ar­ti­cle “Will flip­flop on Supreme Court mat­ter to vot­ers?” (Sept. 23). Yes, if you’re a Demo­crat or In­de­pen­dent voter who is ap­palled by the

GOP’s ruthless tac­tics to con­trol ju­di­cial ap­point­ments, sup­press voter turnout and kow­tow to its white evan­gel­i­cal base.

No, if you’re a Repub­li­can who thinks that end­ing the right to abor­tion while pro­tect­ing the right to have guns are top pri­or­i­ties, and de­fends a pres­i­dent who has told over 20,000 lies while in of­fice. I’d agree with Garo­foli’s as­sess­ment that, no mat­ter when the next Supreme Court jus­tice is con­firmed, all of the con­tro­versy sur­round­ing the process will fur­ther di­min­ish our na­tion’s re­spect for its high­est court.
