Group Letter to Senate Republicans in support of Kavanaugh

Dear Majority Leader McConnell and Chairman Grassley,

Enough is enough. The undersigned organizations represent millions of Americans who are standing with you on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. We are sick and tired of the left’s coordinated, politically motivated attacks against this highly qualified nominee. We write to urge you to end this charade seeking to destroy, not only Judge Kavanaugh, but you and all conservatives. Any more delay in this process will only encourage this disgraceful behavior in the future.

We are thankful for your leadership throughout this nomination. You have been resolute in your support of Judge Kavanaugh, even while trying to be fair to the minority. We commend you for your efforts.

Unfortunately, all your good faith attempts to be fair have been received with more than contempt from the other side. From the beginning, it did not matter who was nominated, they pledged to do anything in their power to stop the nominee. And they have.

The latest orchestrated attack with these unsubstantiated sexual assault claims has taken their tactics to a new low, and we ask you, and all Republican senators, to publicly stand together against this choreographed smear campaign. We, of course, are sensitive and supportive of any victim of sexual assault. But allegations are not evidence, and we simply cannot allow the reputation of an honorable man to be maligned without any corroborating evidence. In this case, all four of the witnesses Dr. Ford claims could corroborate her story have denied it.

Never forget that this entire episode is the fruit of Sen. Diane Feinstein’s poisonous actions, withholding Dr. Ford’s letter until after the hearings to maximize its political impact. Shame on her! Still, you kindly sought to accommodate Dr. Ford, scheduling a hearing for Thursday through an incredible ordeal with her attorney (and a whole team of Democratic operatives).

What has been the result of your good-faith efforts? They sought and, once again, withheld information about another uncorroborated claim. Predictably, Sen. Feinstein is now using it to delay Thursday’s hearings even further. Not even the New York Times believed this new claim, and yet Democrats are still using it to malign Judge Kavanaugh’s good name. When will it be enough? It is clear there is no limit to the other side’s despicable tactics.

It is time to put an end to this political smear campaign and schedule a vote as soon as possible. We are encouraged by the possibility of a committee vote this Friday. The entire Republican Conference must stand united to protect the dignity of the Senate, Judge Kavanaugh, and his family. Any senator who continues to choose to remain silent in the face of this blatant injustice encourages these tactics in the future. The voters are watching.

Sincerely,

Tami Fitzgerald
