JTA: Liberal Jewish groups, Jewish women’s groups slam Kavanaugh confirmation

October 7, 2018

Jewish Democratic Council of America Executive Director Halie Soifer said in a statement that her organization is “deeply disappointed” with Kavanaugh’s confirmation and “issues a warning to Republicans who supported him – actions have consequences and your constituents will judge you harshly in November.”

The Jewish Democrats accused the Republican majority of rushing Kavanaugh’s nomination through the Senate “under the cloud of distrust, belligerence, and obfuscation.” The statement also called Kavanaugh “unsuited for the Supreme Court,” citing, among other things, the “belligerence he demonstrated at last week’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.”
