Hawley notes concerns over Supreme Court nominee’s treatment of sex offenders

Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley blasted Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson on Wednesday, calling out her alarming response to crimes involving sex offenders.

The news comes following Hawley’s meeting with Jackson last week ahead of her Senate confirmation hearings.

“I’ve been researching the record of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, reading her opinions, articles, interviews & speeches. I’ve noticed an alarming pattern when it comes to Judge Jackson’s treatment of sex offenders, especially those preying on children,” Hawley tweeted.

“As far back as her time in law school, Judge Jackson has questioned making convicts register as sex offenders — saying it leads to ‘stigmatization and ostracism.’ She’s suggested public policy is driven by a ‘climate of fear, hatred & revenge’ against sex offenders,” he added.

The new accusations are certain to come up in Brown’s hearings, where the public will hear more regarding her response to the matter.
