Nebraska Democratic Party Chair Jane Kleeb issued the following statement on today’s vote by Sen. Ben Sasse to send the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the full Senate despite sexual assault allegations against the judge.
“Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified under oath: ‘Brett and Mark came into the bedroom. I was pushed onto the bed. I yelled,hoping someone downstairs would hear me. Brett tried to take off my clothes. I believed he was going to rape me.’
“Sen. Ben Sasse, imagine these words coming from the women you love. You would stand with them. But today, you stood with your party.”
NDP Associate Chair Frank LaMere added: “I stand four square with Dr. Ford and the women across this country. Every American should. I stand with her now and into the future. Every American should……but they won’t.”
