The Senate Must Reject Wendy Vitter, Matthew Kacsmaryk, and Neomi Rao, says NWLC

Posted on February 5, 2019 Issues: Judges & Courts Judicial Nominations

The following is a statement by Anna Chu, Vice President for Strategy and Policy at the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC):

“The Trump-Pence Administration is hard at work trying to take over our courts with anti-woman, anti-civil rights judges. And just this week, the Senate is considering three dangerous judicial nominees – Wendy Vitter, Matthew Kacsmaryk, and Neomi Rao. Vitter has spread junk science while fighting against access to abortion and birth control. Kacsmaryk has at every turn undermined and actively fought against treating LGBTQ people and women with dignity and respect. Rao has written that women are to blame if they are sexually assaulted while drunk – and she has a clear record of using her position in the Trump Administration to actively roll back protections for survivors of sexual assault. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. None of these nominees are fit for a lifetime position as a judge. Senators need to know that we’re watching and that we won’t let these extremists into seats of power without a fight.”

It's time for change, and we must act now. Time's up.
