In his nomination hearings, Brett Kavanaugh is being mendacious and/or evasive in his replies to questions regarding whether or not he received sexually explicit emails from Judge Alex Kozinski. Judging by this article in Slate, it is highly unlikely that he did not receive such emails and also highly unlikely that his claims of “not remembering” whether he did receive them are anything other than deliberate lies. The mere fact of receiving these emails should not exclude him from consideration, as by all accounts everyone who was unfortunate enough to work for this judge was subjected to his inappropriate behavior. But for Kavanaugh to lie and evade in order to avoid discussing this troubling episode in his past absolutely disqualifies him as a candidate.
If your Senators are YES or Undecided on Kavanaugh, contact them and make the point that his lies regarding the Kozinski emails disqualify him as a candidate.
If your Senators are NO on Kavanaugh, contact one or more of the undecideds with the same point: Doug Jones (D-AL), Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Susan Collins (R-ME), Claire McCaskill (D-MO).
