Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Katherine Clark released the following statement regarding the Senate Judiciary Committee vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh:

“Dr. Ford’s testimony was powerful. She was courageous, straightforward, and I believe her. Judge Kavanaugh’s rage-filled, highly politicized response demonstrated he has neither the character, veracity, nor temperament for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court.

The Senate Republicans had an opportunity to show the American people – especially our young people – that credible accusations of sexual assault will be taken seriously and that character matters.”
