 Graham to vote against Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination
by Jordain Carney - 03/31/22 11:10 AM ET

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said on Thursday that he will oppose Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court, marking the first time the GOP senator will vote against a nominee for the high court since joining the Senate.

“I will oppose her and I will vote ‘no,’” Graham said from the Senate floor.

“My decision is based upon her record of judicial activism, flawed sentencing methodology regarding child pornography cases and a belief Judge Jackson will not be deterred by the plain meaning of the law when it comes to a liberal cause,” Graham added.

Graham’s opposition was largely telegraphed: He had some of the most tense moments with Jackson in her hearing, including questioning her sentencing decisions and re-litigating grievances on how confirmations of GOP-nominated Supreme Court justices have been handled.

And while Graham’s opposition won’t prevent Jackson from being confirmed as the first Black, female Supreme Court justice, it is expected to result in Biden’s nominee facing additional procedural hurdles before she can get to a final vote.

Does it really matter??  Collins will vote for her.  In the end, she'll be seated on the bench.  **nononono*

Graham flips on Ketanji Brown Jackson, will oppose her Supreme Court nomination

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Thursday he will oppose Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court, a change from a year ago when Graham was one of three GOP senators to approve Jackson to an appellate court.

Graham announced his opposition on the Senate floor Thursday, citing, in part, Jackson's record as a federal court judge in sentencing child pornography offenders to lesser sentences than the guidelines stated. ........
