Fred Guttenberg, the father of a student murdered in the Parkland, Florida high school shooting, ripped into Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, calling him a “bad person.”
Guttenberg’s 14-year-old daughter, Jamie, was one of 17 killed at the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
His comments came in a Thursday night tweet and followed Kavanaugh’s testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, where he addressed allegations of sexual assault.
“Judge Kavanaugh, I listened to you talk of your life being ruined,” Guttenberg wrote. “It is not. I listened to you turn yourself into a victim. You are not. What today showed is that you clearly are a partisan and do not have the temperament for the court. Even worse, you are just a bad person.”
And earlier, he had tweeted: “Justice Kavanaugh your life and family are not ruined. Try having a child murdered by a weapon that you refer to as "common use." You will get through this and hug both of your children tonight.”
At an earlier hearing Guttenberg had walked up to Kavanaugh, extended his hand and tried to introduce himself. However, the high court nominee turned and walked away. Kavanaugh later said he assumed the man had been one of the many protesters in the hearing room.
