Ka­vanaugh un­wor­thy

Boston Herald - - OPINION -

The Repub­li­can-con­trolled Se­nate rammed through the con­fir­ma­tion of Brett Ka­vanaugh for the Supreme Court out of fear of los­ing con­trol of the Se­nate in the up­com­ing midterm elec­tions. The vote was along party lines, 49 Repub­li­cans and one Demo­crat for him, and 48 Democrats against him. Un­for­tu­nately they put the Repub­li­can Party ahead of the well-be­ing of the coun­try. Based on the tes­ti­mony, I be­lieve they con­firmed some­one who prob­a­bly as­saulted a fe­male and who ei­ther lied to the Se­nate Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee or could not re­mem­ber the as­sault be­cause of his highly in­tox­i­cated con­di­tion. Ka­vanaugh prob­a­bly lied to the com­mit­tee when he down­played his vast beer con­sump­tion in col­lege. Nu­mer­ous class­mates have stated he was a heavy drinker and a bel­liger­ent drunk. Ka­vanaugh ap­pears to be highly par­ti­san and bi­ased as ev­i­denced dur­ing the com­mit­tee hear­ings when he said there was a left-wing con­spir­acy against him in­clud­ing “re­venge on be­half of the Clin­tons, and mil­lions of dol­lars in money from out­side left-wing op­po­si­tion groups.” Ka­vanaugh is deeply flawed and an un­wor­thy Supreme Court jus­tice. The ve­rac­ity and un­bi­ased opin­ions of the Supreme Court are in ques­tion.
