Senator Joe Donnelly has made a statement about a scheduled vote regarding U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Donnelly, who met with the nominee but has yet to say if he will vote in favor of putting him on the Supreme Court, issued the statement on Monday, Sep. 17, in reaction to allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh.

Donnelly said “Given the nature of these allegations, and the number of outstanding questions, I believe the Judiciary Committee should hold off on Thursday’s scheduled vote.”

Kavanaugh was accused by a woman of an attempted rape with an accomplice when he was a high school student, and stated that she would be willing to testify to that effect.

The old seriousness of the charges canard, a Golden Oldie from the Democrat playbook. Try this on for size Sen. Joe; rumor has it you have little boys in the motor home you “drive” in your campaign commercials. The chuckhole you hit is a nice touch. Is any unfounded charge used to smear someone fair game now. One day in the future your party might be back in power Joe, is this how you want your parties Supreme Court nominees treated? How’d that nuclear option work out for the Democrats? What goes around comes around.

DISGUSTING I life of honorable good works by another man DESTROYED by allegations from a troubled woman ( investigate Her background and report on it ) She has destroyed her social media Her students evaluate her as troubled , dark, and unbalanced. She is a democrat activist . This is a playbook from the Annita Hill Clarence Thomas. Make an allegation at the last minute. Why was this not brought up during the hearings. This gives weak kneeded Democrats and Republicans the excuse to vote against a good well qualified man. Disgusting

Yeah, we should trust NY Joe to do the right thing…like being the deciding vote for Obamascare. Or writing op eds in favor of the Iran Nuclear(assurance) bill. Or being against tax cuts.

NY Joe must go. He’s just another deciding vote for any unAmerican idea the Dems come up with. He will vote however Chuckyou Schumer tells him to.
