An Open Letter to Neil Gorsuch

Dear Judge Gorsuch,

You have promised to uphold the law and to be fair. Given that the Senate has moved to change the rules in order to place you on the highest court in the United States, you have an obligation to withdrawal your name from consideration. Winning by cheating is not winning, nor–in this case–is it moral. It should be illegal.

The Supreme Court of the United States is an important institution in our imagined nationalistic community. If you accept an appointment at this point, we will all know–in further tangible, direct terms–that you likely do not intend to actually upload the law and to be fair.

People also have reason to cautiously question your promise to uphold the law and to be fair given the unusual and dangerous behavior of our current President of the United States.

Actions speak volumes. 

Sincerely,

Dr. Andrew Joseph Pegoda

  1. Did you have the same objection in 2013 when Harry Ried used the nuclear option to block republicans from filibustering Obama’s three picks for the court of appeals in DC?
