We reject Trump's nominee

Jul 22, 2018

Harley has written to you about the impact the Supreme Court nominees have on civil liberties, equal protection, and campaign finance.

It’s no surprise that Trump has chosen to fill Justice Kennedy’s seat with another “Big Money Justice.”

Justice Kennedy authored the Citizens United decision, opening the floodgates for unlimited political donations and redefining public corruption.

Financing campaigns work one of two ways: there’s theDana Rohrabacher method of collecting big checks from special interests and promising favors in Congress; then there’s the Harley Rouda method of mobilizing our neighbors to create a grassroots movement.

You know our momentum is built on small-dollar donations. You’ve helped us by chipping in $3 at a time.

We need a Supreme Court Justice who stands on the side of communities. A Justice that will reverse the damage of Citizens United.

Right now, community organizers, candidates, and representatives across the country are working to get 100,000 signatures to demand the Senate reject a “Big Money Judge” that Trump nominates – all the way up to the Supreme Court.

This decision will come down to the vote of 3-4 Senators. There’s not much that we can do to stop the nomination, but we’re going to give it our best shot. Sign your name.
