Ruth Bader Ginsburg Praises Judge Kavanaugh For Helping Women
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is once again, singing the praises of embattled fellow Justice, Brett Kavanaugh. Ginsburg, often revered by liberals, believes that Kavanaugh is helping the women’s equality movement in the U.S. court system. Her statements directly contradict many Democrat party statements regarding Judge Kavanaugh’s overall demeanor towards women.
“There is a very important first on the Supreme Court this term and it’s thanks to our new justice, Justice Kavanaugh,” CBS News reported Ginsburg as saying.
This wasn’t Ginsburg’s first time praising Kavanaugh’s commitment to helping the women’s movement. Last month, she similarly remarked on his selection of an all-female legal staff.
“Justice Kavanaugh made history by bringing on board an all-female law clerk crew,” she said. “Thanks to his selections, the court has this term, for the first time ever, more women than men serving as law clerks.”
The praise counters Kavanaugh’s confirmation process narrative whereas Christine Blasey-Ford accused the judge of sexual assault. Democrats got behind Ford, placing her in an awkward Senate testimony environment whereas she recounted the accusations. Blasey-Ford’s yearbook photos, among a few salacious headlines, caused some to question her testimony. The accusations led many liberals to believe that Kavanaugh would be a pillar for conservative votes. But that’s been far from the case, in fact, FiveThirtyEight now rates the judge as a swing voter.
Judge Kavanaugh New SCOTUS Swing Vote
The two graphs below corroborate the rating.
So far, the idea that Judge Kavanaugh would help conservatives in a hostile takeover of the Supreme Court has fallen flat. Many believe Kavanaugh will overturn Roe vs. Wade, but he’s stated in the past that the decision is “precedent.” With red and blue states warring over abortion, Roe vs. Wade might once again, meet the SCOTUS. That’s when we’ll learn whether or not Kavanaugh will help overturn the decision.
