Kamala Harris Receives a Hero’s Welcome from Women in Iowa

At Kamala Harris’ first stop in Iowa this week, a woman edged her way through the crowd to meet the California senator.

Lindsay Simpson, a 33-year-old English teacher, told Harris she was a victim of sexual abuse. Simpson’s eyes brimmed with tears as she told Harris, who took both of Simpson’s hands in her own, that she felt the California senator had spoken for all the women who have experienced sexual assault when she questioned the then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, the psychology professor who accused Kavanaugh of assault when they were in high school. Kavanaugh denied the allegations.

In front of thousands of supporters packed into in the Houston Toyota Center, President Donald Trump talked up his one-time rival Ted Cruz and starkly laid out his version of the choice voters face in the midterm elections on Nov. 6.

The Rigging of American Politics

Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court by an unpopular president who won 3 million fewer votes than the runner-up. He was confirmed by a Senate majority that represents a minority of the country. He was confirmed despite most Americans telling pollster after pollster they did not want him seated on the Supreme Court.

What LGBT Supporters Need to Know About Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh has replaced Anthony Kennedy on the US Supreme Court. For all the scrutiny of Justice Kavanaugh’s personal life, his hearings told us little about where he will land on gay rights. Americans across the political spectrum have reason for concern — especially pro-LGBT conservatives like ourselves who relied on Justice Kennedy as a champion of limited government. With the polarizing Kavanaugh confirmation now behind us, gay rights advocates need to prepare for the political reality of a rightward shift in the Supreme Court, because much more than marriage is at stake.
