Kavanaugh Marathon: The Supreme Court is at Stake

This week we are doing a marathon of calls and actions to stop the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. This is an emergency, not just because it will tip the Supreme Court conservative, but also because a man who faces legal troubles (Trump) is about to be allowed to appoint his own judge. 

Just like with healthcare, Republicans are disrespecting the process of democracy by refusing to yield the entirety of Kavanaugh’s records and by dumping the information they are releasing at the last minute so that Senators do not have sufficient time to read them.

Today, call the Senate Judiciary Committee and tell them that the Kavanaugh nomination must be paused so that the Senate can properly evaluate the candidate and the circumstance of his nomination.

ACTION 1: Call the Senate Judiciary Committee

Senate Judiciary Committee: 202-224-5225

SCRIPT:
“Hi, my name is [NAME] and I am calling to demand that Kavanaugh’s Senate hearings be halted until the proper documentation is provided and the Senate and the public is given enough time to properly evaluate it. The Senate and the public deserve to review Kavanaugh's full record, like we did for Kagan and Sotomayor. There is no reasonable excuse for the withholding of documents or the rush to push him through. Respect America’s constitution and democracy - release the 100,000 documents from Kavanaugh's time in the Bush White House, and delay the hearings to allow full discussion of his record.”

Background:
Constitutional Precedent that Kavanaugh should recuse himself: https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/09/04/kavanaugh-hearings-recuse-himself-supreme-court-219635

Action 2: Get Friends to call their Senators

Do you know a resident of Alaska, Maine, West Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, Florida, or Arizona? Their Senators need to hear from them! Ask them to call their senators and demand they VOTE NO on Kavanaugh's confirmation. Here's a script you can paste into a Facebook post, email or text message to your friends. 

[SCRIPT FOR YOUR FRIENDS IN SWING STATES]
“Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I’d like to call on Senator [name] to oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Please push for the hearing to be postponed untill all of his records can be examined. Please VOTE NO when his confirmation comes up, and do everything you can to convince your collegues to do the same."
