The daughter-in-law of late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia says that Democrats’ treatment of nominee Brett Kavanaugh has convinced her to vote Republican.
In an op-ed for The Federalist, Adele Scalia, a former attorney and the wife of Christopher Scalia, wrote that the treatment Kavanaugh received from Senate Democrats turned her into “a minority, immigrant woman who supports Republicans.”
Scalia, who emigrated from Trinidad and Tobago in 2010, wrote that she has “always considered myself politically moderate: I am unapologetically pro-life, but my views on affirmative action, Black Lives Matter, and gun control made me sympathize strongly with Democratic perspectives and occasionally led to arguments with my husband and father-in-law.”
She writes that after Kavanaugh’s nomination, and the subsequent Democratic opposition, she became convinced “that Democrats are not who they claim to be.
“The party that established itself as a champion for the voiceless, powerless, and wrongfully accused, betrayed its values and launched a vicious attack on Kavanaugh that left him voiceless, powerless, and completely incapable of defending himself.”
Scalia goes on to accuse Democrats of “gaslighting” in their reaction to Kavanaugh’s testimony
“These events opened my eyes to the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party. It’s actually a very exclusive club that wants me as a member based solely on stereotypes of who I am supposed to be. The core values they tout do not apply to everyone, as Kavanaugh can testify, but only to a very small, very specific subset of people who tick certain boxes or support them in their political agenda.”
