A group representing 6,000 Mormon women are calling for a delay in confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court until there is an investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against him, The Hill is reporting.
Mormon Women for Ethical Government targeted their pleas to those members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who are Mormon – Sens. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., Orin Hatch, R-Utah, Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Mike Crapo, R-Idaho.
"We very specifically urge the four members of the committee who share our faith as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints… to ensure that these charges be taken seriously and that every attempt be made to ascertain the truth of the situation," the group said in a statement.
"Our mutual faith teaches that any sexual abuse or assault in any context is contemptible and worthy of the most severe condemnation."
And The Salt Lake Tribune reported the group added: “If these accusations are proved false, an investigation will prevent harm to the court's legitimacy. If they are true, then Judge Kavanaugh must not be confirmed.”
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has blasted Democrats for “working hard to destroy” Kavanaugh. He said Kavanaugh has “the potential to be one of our greatest Supreme Court justices ever.”
