Graham Votes Against Biden Supreme Court Nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today voted against President Biden’s nominee to the Supreme Court of the United States, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Graham said:

“My ‘no’ vote was based upon Judge Jackson’s record of judicial activism, flawed sentencing methodology regarding child pornography cases, and a belief that she will not be deterred by the plain meaning of the law when it comes to liberal causes. 

“I found Judge Jackson to be a person of good character, respected by her peers, and someone who has worked hard to achieve her current position. However, her record is overwhelming in its lack of a steady judicial philosophy and a tendency to achieve outcomes in spite of what the law requires or common sense would dictate. 

“After a thorough review of Judge Jackson's record and information gained at the hearing from an evasive witness, I know why Judge Jackson was the favorite of the Radical Left.”
