NARAL Pro-Choice Iowa Condemns Sen. Grassley’s Actions Around Allegations of Brett Kavanaugh’s Sexual Misconduct

Today’s article in The New Yorker broke news on horrifying allegations about Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct. Senator Grassley responded almost immediately with a well choreographed letter that very strongly indicates he knew about the allegations and sought to cover them up. NARAL Pro-Choice Iowa released the following statement in response:

“Senator Grassley’s apparent efforts to conceal these serious allegations of sexual misconduct are shameful, even for a man known for blocking and interfering with past Supreme Court confirmations. All he cares about is confirming a Supreme Court nominee that will advance the most extreme GOP interests, even if it means pushing through a man accused of sexual assault.

“For him to  withhold this information, which is clearly relevant to a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, from the public is shameful and beneath his role as chair of the committee, and our representative in Washington. It begs the question, what else is he hiding?”
