Statement on the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court
Washington DC, April 7, 2017— The National LGBTQ Task Force is making the following statement on the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court.
“Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court represents the triumph of bullying over moderation. Taking their lead from the Bully-in-Chief Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell twisted and turned the rules of the Senate to ram this extremist nominee through — slashing and burning safeguards for moderation, such as the rule calling for a 60 votes threshold needed to confirm an Associate Supreme Court Justice. We now have a new Justice who is so conservative that he makes Antonin Scalia look moderate,” said Russell Roybal, Deputy Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force.
