NO on David Porter for Federal Judge
Trump has nominated David Porter for a lifetime federal appeals court judgeship, one step below the U.S. Supreme Court. Porter’s record fits a far-right conservative on all the major social issues. He is way outside the legal mainstream. Porter has a record:
Against the Affordable Care Act
Against women’s reproductive rights
Against the Violence Against Women Act
Against same-sex marriage and LGBTQ equality
Against environmental protection
Against workers’ rights
Back in 2014, David Porter’s name was floated for the same federal appeals court. Porter’s reputation in his own state is so bad that his Senator Casey (D-PA) disapproved his nomination. Activists in his state mobilized against the nomination and the idea was dropped. But Trump has picked up this bad penny again.
Now in 2018, Senator Casey has disapproved Porter’s nomination–again. Activists in his state are working against this nomination–again. It always takes 51 votes in the Senate to stop a nomination, and they need our help.
Please call or email your U.S. Senators to vote NO on David Porter for judge.
Hi, my name is [name] and I’m a constituent from [zip code]. I’m calling to ask the Senator to vote NO on the nomination of David Porter for a lifetime judgeship on the federal appeals court. Porter has an extremely conservative record and he is outside the legal mainstream. I’m worried that he will be a biased judge against civil rights, women’s reproductive rights, LGBTQ equality, environmental protection and workers’ rights. Please vote against Porter’s nomination.
