Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) who recently spoke with CBS stated her support of Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh at the peak of his sexual misconduct accusations showed women all over America that people are innocent until proven guilty.
Ernst added she will continue her support of Kavanaugh unless real proof is actually presented.
CBS’s John Dickerson asked, “What message does a vote of support for Judge Kavanaugh send to women in America?”
“What message that sends to women in America is that we are innocent until proven guilty in this great country,” Ernst responded. “And I have absolutely no doubt after reviewing Dr. Ford’s testimony that she has suffered from something very traumatic in her lifetime, but, simply, the corroboration wasn’t there with even the witnesses that she brought forward.”
