27 Dems vote against heightened protections for SCOTUS justices

Earlier this week, in the wake of an alleged plot to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the House of Representatives passed a measure designed to bolster law enforcement protection for high court justices and their families, but in an especially disgraceful twist, 27 Democrats voted against the move, as Fox News reports, arguably signaling their willingness for open season on jurists with whom they disagree.

The bill, known as the Supreme Court Police Parity Act, already passed the Senate last month in a unanimous vote taken in on the heels of a spate of protests near the homes of conservative justices that stemmed from the leak of a draft majority opinion that suggested an imminent reversal of the landmark abortion ruling in Roe v. Wade.

According to The Hill, the legislation would provide for “around-the-clock security protection” for family members of justices on the high court as well as to “any officer” employed by the institution if the marshal of the court deems it necessary.

Some of the Democrats who opposed the law claimed they did so because it did not expand protective measures to include court staffers such as law clerks and their family members, with others lamenting the lack of additional safeguards for all members of the federal judiciary, including district and appeals court judges.

Far-left firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took to social media over the weekend to tout her stance against the measure, declaring, “I wake up this morning and I start to hear murmurs that there is going to be an attempt to pass the Supreme Court supplemental protection bill the day after gun safety legislation for schools and kids and people is stalled.”

“Oh, so we can pass protections for us and here easily, right? But we can’t pass protections for everyday people? I think not,” the congresswoman stated.

Other high-profile Democrats who voted against the bill included Reps. Jamaal Bowman (NY), Cori Bush (MO), Raul Grijalva (AZ), Pramila Jayapal (WA), Ayanna Pressley (MA), Rashida Tlaib (MI), and Maxine Waters (CA), as Fox News further noted.

The passage of the measure comes on the heels of growing criticism of Attorney General Merrick Garland, who has thus far declined to take federal action – statutorily authorized by 18 U.S.C. 1507 – against pro-abortion protesters who continue to demonstrate outside the residences of conservative high court justices after left-wing activist group Ruth Sent Us published their home addresses.

As top GOP strategist Karl Rove opined over the weekend, unless Garland and the Justice Department do not begin initiating arrests of those protesters in the near future, “open season on judges” will essentially have been declared, and unfortunately, that prospect does not seem to bother these 27 Democrat House members in the least.
