Three Republicans Say They Will Vote to Confirm KBJ

Three senior Republican senators have announced they will vote to confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court of the United States.

Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Susan Collins of Maine have all shared their plans to vote for the controversial nominee. Each one has been torched on social media for their support of the judge, whose sentences for pedophiles have been shockingly lenient.

All three deeply unpopular senators referred to Jackson’s qualifications and experience and ignored the buzz over her treatment of cases involving child exploitation and her inability to define the word “woman.” While opponents do not dispute her qualifications, her refusal to adhere to standard sentencing is extremely concerning.

Scathing Letter

In fact, several state Attorneys General have publicly opposed Jackson’s confirmation. In a letter, the officials wrote:

“The undersigned attorneys general and I write to express our opposition to the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court because of her unconscionable leniency toward criminals who possess, publish, and produce child pornography—or, more accurately, images of child rape. Judge Jackson hasn’t merely erred on the more forgiving end of a spectrum of available punishments, as many judges sometimes do. Rather, during her decade-long tenure as a federal district court judge, she repeatedly cast victims aside, elevated criminal defendants above them, and sentenced the abusers well below the accepted federal guidelines. For example, in dozens of child pornography cases, she imposed sentences that were anywhere from 15 to nearly 70 percent less than what the prosecutor had requested.”
