Letter to my Senators

10 07 2018

Here’s a letter I sent to my senators. Feel free to share/appropriate/whatever.

Dear Senator,

Only one thing matters in the debate over Justice Kennedy’s replacement: when Mitch McConnell and congressional republicans refused to even hold hearings for Merrick Garland, they stole the nomination from President Obama. This action was unprecedented, unwarranted, and surely illegal. Almost equally outrageous is that the action went uncontested. Such blatant disregard for the rule of law cannot go unchallenged. The fact that it happened in 2016 is no reason to abandon the issue. Nothing is normal anymore. There are serious questions about the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency. The institutions that keep America strong and free are under attack. I urge you to take this opportunity to demand the least of appropriate consequences for the egregious actions of Mitch McConnell and associates: no one fills the seat unless it’s Merrick Garland, or unless Donald Trump is cleared of collusion.

Thank you!
