Brookfield, Wis. — After immediately announcing opposition to Judge Brett Kavanaugh and refusing to do her job and meet with him before his Senate hearing, Senator Tammy Baldwin owes it to Wisconsinites to say whether she agrees with Senator Cory Booker’s unethical decision Thursday to release confidential records about racial profiling.

“Senator Baldwin let Wisconsinites down by refusing to do her job and meeting with Judge Kavanaugh before his hearing. Voters deserve to know if she agrees with Booker’s unethical decision to release confidential documents,” said Leah Vukmir campaign manager Jess Ward. “Given Senator Booker knows his actions risked expulsion from the Senate, Baldwin needs to tell Wisconsinites if she will hold her far-left ally accountable for releasing this private information.”

As Fox News reports:

“New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker injected chaos into Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing Thursday by releasing confidential Kavanaugh emails with the backing of fellow Democrats in violation of Senate rules, calling it an act of “civil disobedience” and drawing condemnation from the Republicans on the committee.  ‘I am going to release the e-mail about racial profiling and I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate,’ Booker said at the beginning of the third day of Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing. After announcing plans to do so, Booker released 12 pages of emails — which had been marked ‘committee confidential’ — online for the public to read. The emails included internal post-9/11 discussions surrounding issues of racial profiling.”  (Fox News, 09/06/18)
