It is anti-woman to judge Susan Collins solely as a woman

Howard TerryOct 10, 2018

Collins voted to confirm Kavanaugh Saturday, one of her "toughest decisions to-date", she stated in an interview on Face the Nation Sunday morning.

The UNC-Chapel Hill community are also submitting signatures through a more secure Google form.

Collins told the Senate: 'To my knowledge, Judge Kavanaugh is the first Supreme Court nominee to express the view that precedent is not only a practice and a tradition, but rooted in Article 3 of our constitution itself'.

"This vote is a complete betrayal of ME voters, of the women who have called her offices, and written letters, and organized phone banks, and attended rallies, and told their very deeply painful stories to her and her staff".

Judicial Crisis Network, the "dark money" group that spent millions promoting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation effort, announced a new "six-figure TV and digital ad campaign" Tuesday in support of Sen. So, we come here so she can see what our concerns are and how we feel about what she's doing.

Collins, a key GOP swing vote in the confirmation process, was referring to allegations made by Julie Swetnick, who said she had witnessed Kavanaugh attending more than 10 house parties between 1981 and 1983 where he and his friend, Mark Judge, were present.

"My greatest fears have been realized-and the reality has been far worse than what I expected", she said.

Collins joined all of her Republican colleagues and Democratic Sen.

But this letter nominating Dr. Blasey Ford is not about partisan politics: it is about recognizing that the simple act of speaking one's truth, especially when that truth involves sexual assault, is an act of bravery.

"I've had the honor of serving in the Senate for almost 22 years, and this is as ugly a situation as I've ever seen during that time", Collins said. "She has betrayed women across this country".

Her constituents in ME have taken notice, raising some four million dollars for her eventual 2020 opponent.

"My bottom line is I'm going to give it due consideration, after the midterms", she said. She answered questions directly and forthrightly; she showed no evidence of avoidance or defensiveness.

Ho said she plans to collect signatures on the letter this week and submit the nomination October 14. And many of us were reminded about how a student who is struggling in school may be facing challenges that aren't just found on our course syllabi.

According to lawyer Sandra Lundy, who lives in neighboring MA, she is not only boycotting the state - she is actively campaigning for others to join her.

"The facts presented do not mean that President - that Professor Ford was not sexually assaulted that night or at some other time. That is hardly what I would call exoneration", said Hirono, citing a statement by Ford that she had talked about the alleged assault to her spouse and to others and that she had taken a lie detector test.
