As confirmation hearings begin for Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, we look at his record on voting rights and speak with Ari Berman, senior contributing writer for The Nation. His recent piece is headlined “In E-mails, Neil Gorsuch Praised a Leading Republican Activist Behind Voter Suppression Efforts.”

Confirmation hearings begin today for Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s pick to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court. If confirmed by the Senate, Gorsuch would give conservatives a narrow 5-4 majority on the court. When he was first nominated, Gorsuch praised Antonin Scalia.

As a judge on the Tenth Circuit, Neil Gorsuch ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby in the case deciding whether the company could refuse to provide birth control coverage to employees as required by Obamacare. Judge Gorsuch also has a long history of ruling against employees in cases involving federal race, sex, age, disability and political discrimination and retaliation claims. For more, we speak with Fordham law professor Zephyr Teachout. She recently ran for a congressional seat in upstate New York. Her recent piece for The Washington Post is headlined “Neil Gorsuch sides with big business, big donors and big bosses.”

  2. Yesterday, Trump Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuch began his confirmation hearings.

    So how did Democrats respond? Democratic Senator Michael Bennet introduced him!

    Worse yet, The New York Times just reported that, privately, several Democratic senators are saying they should “hold their fire” for the next vacancy.1

    Hold their fire for what? This is the seat that could decide whether Trump’s Muslim ban and Citizens United are upheld, and Gorsuch is considered more conservative than Antonin Scalia.2 The stakes for this seat are enormous.

    We’re calling on Democrats to stand and fight with every tool at their disposal to stop Neil Gorsuch. Will you chip in $5 to UltraViolet PAC?

    Donald Trump is the least popular president in modern times. The grassroots resistance is massive, with crowds marching in the streets and packing town halls all over the country.

    But only a handful of senators have said they’ll support a filibuster of Gorsuch, and Democrats haven’t had any kind of a clear message. That’s why all over the media we’re seeing headlines like these:

    “Why Are Democrats Holding Back on Gorsuch?”–The Atlantic3
    “Democrats May Be Botching This Supreme Court Confirmation Fight”–The Huffington Post4
    “Democrats paralyzed as Gorsuch skates”–Politico5

    Republicans refused to even give President Obama’s nominee a hearing. If Democrats won’t put up a fight over Gorsuch, what will they fight for?

    UltraViolet Education Fund is flooding the senate with phone calls and petitions demanding that Democrats put up a fight. Will you chip in $5 to UltraViolet PAC?

    Yes, I’ll chip in $5 to UltraViolet PAC.

    Thank you for stepping up.
