Carroll County GOP and Dems Weigh In On Kavanaugh Appointment

As you’d imagine, Carroll County Democrats and Carroll County Republicans have differing views on the swearing in of new Supreme Court Associate Justice, Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend.

James Biddle heads up the Carroll County Democrats:

“The Kavanaugh confirmation shows the consequences of voter apathy in our last election. If we had a good turnout, if Hilary had been elected, we wouldn’t have to be going through this right now. We have a Republican led congress that pushed this nomination through despite calls for a thorough FBI investigation. That FBI investigation wasn’t thorough. In addition to that, you have Kavanaugh’s behavior during the testimony which to us is unbecoming of a supreme court judge. So much so that the ABA is reevaluation  his qualifications as we speak. It is a sad day for the women of our country and it is an overall sad day for our democracy.”

Chairman of the Carroll County Republican Party Rick Tillman:

“It makes me have faith in the system again that you are innocent until proven guilty. I don’t  think that it was a controversial decision. And definitely I am against abuse and rape, but we had a ‘he said, she said’ and no evidence. It’s sad, it really saddened me that he and his family had to go through that. There was no evidence as far as witnesses over the years. The FBI investigated him six times. Then the Democrats wanted to investigate him this week, they did and still that was not enough.”

The US senate approved Kavanaugh’s nomination by a vote of 50 to 48 on Saturday.
