OCPA Statement on Kavanaugh appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court
October 7, 2018
After Brett Kavanaugh was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court, Trent England, Executive Vice President of the Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs (OCPA), issued the following statement:
"Both of Oklahoma's United States Senators, Jim Inhofe and James Lankford, deserve thanks for taking the confirmation process seriously and, after considering all that was presented, voting to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh."
"As someone who worked in Washington on judicial confirmations, I can say I have never seen such bad faith and vicious partisanship as that deployed over the last few weeks by the minority party Senators on the Judiciary Committee."
"The role of the Supreme Court is to uphold the law, not make policy beyond it. Our most precious law is the United States Constitution. The Court has for too long imposed its will on social policy while failing to enforce constitutional limits on federal power. I think Justice Kavanaugh will be part of a new majority that will begin to right the ship and restore the rule of law."
