Doug Ducey Still Supports Brett Kavanaugh Despite Sexual Assault Allegations

progressnowazBlog, DoubleTalkDucey

We believe women. We believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. This weekend, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward and said publicly that Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school.

Back in July, despite concerns even then with Kavanaugh’s qualifications,  Governor Doug Ducey signed onto a letter in support of Brett Kavanaugh. When asked by press if he still stands by that letter, Ducey deflected. The letter cites Kavanaugh’s “impeccable” credentials and says Kavanaugh will make decisions based on law, not his “personal preferences.”

It’s time to stop Kavanaugh’s nomination entirely. Between the assault allegations and Kavanaugh’s position on the issues, it’s more than clear that he should not get a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. Arizona needs a governor who believes women and who trusts women. Doug Ducey should take direction from Senator Jeff Flake, who recognizes the seriousness of the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. It’s critical that the Kavanaugh vote be delayed until the Senate Judiciary Committee can hear from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

See the letter below.
