Say no to Judge Kavanaugh, Sen. Daines

Print Article

To the editor:

Last Friday, a group of Montanans of disparate ages and religious affiliations and I went to the Billings office of Sen. Steve Daines and made a statement urging him to vote not to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. We and many other Montanans are deeply disturbed by the allegations of sexual assault that have been made against Kavanaugh.

At the Senator’s office, we shared our stories of survival, and how our lives and the lives of people we cared about had been affected by sexual assault.

I would like to thank Sen. Jon Tester for his opposition to Kavanaugh’s nomination, and for standing up for survivors and the men, women, children and Montana families affected by sexual assault. Regardless of partisan politics, Kavanaugh has amply demonstrated that he lacks both the moral character and the impartiality required to serve on the Supreme Court.

We applaud Senator Tester’s decision to oppose his nomination, and urge Senator Daines to do the same.

—Adriane Hanson,

Laurel
