MADISON, Wis. — Ron Johnson, U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, today announced he would be voting in favor of Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to a lifetime seat on the United States Supreme Court.

Johnson’s support comes despite multiple, credible reports that Kavanaugh committed multiple sexual assaults, serially engaged in boorish, drunken behavior and after an angry, intemperate and borderline unhinged performance in which he tried to deny his behavior and save his nomination.

The following are the statements of One Wisconsin Now Research Director Joanna Beilman-Dulin:

“Ron Johnson has shown time and again he does not take sexual harassment or sexual assault seriously.

“Ron Johnson has defended pedophile priests. Ron Johnson has voted against the Violence Against Women Act. Ron Johnson has discounted reports of sexual harassment in his workplace because he said he’s never seen any. Ron Johnson did not inform law enforcement or Republican leaders of the Wisconsin State Assembly when a member of their caucus sexually assaulted a member of his staff.

“Of course Ron Johnson is voting for a lifetime appointment to U.S. Supreme Court for a nominee credibly accused of multiple sexual assaults.

“Ron Johnson doesn’t believe survivors.”
