Concerns About SCOTUS Nominee Kentanji Brown Jackson, Explained

Supreme Court justices serve as the final arbiter of the law for a lifetime. Their decisions impact Americans for generations. This is why it is so important for senators to question nominees. Today, the left claims that the right’s attacks on Ketanji Brown Jackson are racist. But they are not. Here are five valid concerns:

High Reversal Rate: According to The Washington Times, the D.C. Circuit overturned Jackson’s decisions, including some for judicial overreach, 11.9% of the time. As a result, some accuse Jackson of ruling based on politics, not law, which is concerning for a Supreme Court justice whose rulings are virtually final.

Failure to Define a Woman: Despite advocating for more women on the federal bench earlier in her hearing and being explicitly appointed to represent black females, Judge Jackson was asked to provide a basic definition of a woman. She said she wasn't a biologist and couldn't answer the question. Her answer (or lack thereof) reveals her belief that gender is political.

Lenient Child Porn Record: During her time in the U.S. District Court, Jackson sentenced 7 of 7 child pornography cases well below what the federal guidelines recommended and what the prosecutors sought. Additionally, in a Harvard Law Review article, Jackson argued that sex offender registries were unconstitutional.
