Mitch McConnell quotes CREDO’s Heidi Hess on the Senate floor
It’s not often you get quoted on the Senate floor – but that’s what happened last week.
Last Thursday, an angry and defiant Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell went to the Senate floor to rail on our quickly growing movement to impeach Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court.
We must be really getting under his skin because McConnell called CREDO “the mob” and quoted me from an NBC news article about our campaign.
From their desperate attempts to characterize the movement against Kavanaugh, which is more broadly a movement against patriarchy and white supremacy, as a mob, it is obvious that Mitch McConnell and his fellow Republicans are scared. They know, as we do, that we will ultimately win, against Kavanaugh and against systemic oppression, and they are doing everything they can to try to discredit and shut down our movement as it picks up steam.
McConnell and every single Senate Republican have proven that they care more about helping men escape consequences for sexual harassment and assault than about making sure an accused sexual predator and liar isn’t confirmed to the Supreme Court.
That’s why almost 175,000 thousand CREDO members have taken action to demand that the House immediately begin real and thorough investigations and initiate impeachment proceedings against Brett Kavanaugh.
Here at CREDO, we’re proud to be called out by McConnell and we’re glad that he’s scared of the work we all do together.
