Letter: How could our Georgia senators vote to confirm Kavanaugh?

Sens. David Perdue and Johnny Isakson have just definitively shown the world and the citizens of Georgia that they don’t care about their best interests. 

How could they confirm Brett Kavanaugh? Because he’s like them? Because he represents the comportment they admire? Because his complete lack thereof in the hearings should have been enough to disqualify him. Was it his lack of ability to tell the truth that they think is judicial? Because there have been many who know him verifying his lies. Is it because they want to be able to excuse their own treatment of women? 

Men like Kavanaugh, and our senators, tell women that we still have a great fight ahead of us to be believed and valued in this world the way men are. Women are the storm, and the storm is coming for them. And they better believe we will vote them out.
