Opposing The Confirmation Of Michael Boggs

Resolution 14-07.12 

 

WHEREAS, in exchange for moving forward other judicial nominations, the President has nominated for the U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Georgia Michael Boggs, who has publicly taken positions against LGBT rights and women's right of choice, has supported a plan for publicly posting the names of doctors who perform abortions, voted against same-sex marriage, and voted for continued use of the Confederate flag, and

WHEREAS, if Michael Boggs' appointment by a Democratic President is confirmed in the Senate with Democratic support, it will be difficult for Democrats to oppose a future appointment of Boggs to a higher Court, and

WHEREAS, some Democrats have opposed the appointment including Majority Leader Reid, Senator Boxer, and Georgia Congressman John Lewis,

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party thanks Senators Feinstein and Boxer for their statements of concern about this nomination and calls on them to vote against confirmation of Michael Boggs.
