The conduct of Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee has been appalling and embarrassing concerning the Kavanaugh hearing. They demonstrated that they have no regard for their Senate colleagues, the American people, and more importantly for Judge Kavanaugh or his accuser Christine Ford by withholding information from the committee since July. The future and credibility of two lives are at stake, but Senate Democrats chose politics over justice.

What is interesting about the Democrats is that they pick and choose who they will destroy for their political gain. They wasted no time in ousting their own Minnesota Senator Al Franken for alleged sexual misconduct because they wanted to make themselves look righteous in the event a Republican from Alabama accused of sexual misconduct might win a special election Senate seat. But they remain silent on Attorney General candidate Keith Ellison, D-Minn., who has been accused of sexual misconduct. They have no regard for Ellison's accuser. That is an insult and injustice to the rights of all women who Democrats claim to champion.

If we are to preserve the Constitution that our Founding Fathers so admirably created, citizens cannot allow the outrageous misconduct of Senate Democratic members to go unchecked.
