Brave, principled or stupid?

New Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh has made good on his pledge to hire women to serve as his law clerks, becoming the first justice to have an all-female staff.

Kavanaugh said during his Senate confirmation hearings that he has made a special effort to hire women after reading a story years ago about the unequal balance between men and woman hired for prestigious clerkships at the Supreme Court and for other federal judges.

During his 12 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, a majority of the clerks he hired were women, which he said should be an indicator of his views about women in the workplace.

“My women law clerks said I was one of the strongest advocates in the federal judiciary for women lawyers,” Kavanaugh said at the hearing. “And they wrote that the legal profession is fairer and more equal because of me.”

He added: “In my time on the bench, no federal judge — not a single one in the country — has sent more women law clerks to clerk on the Supreme Court than I have.”

Kavanaugh told the senators that as part of a contingent plan should he be confirmed, he had to hire “a first group of four law clerks who could be available to clerk at the Supreme Court for me on a moment’s notice.”

He added: “All four are women. If confirmed, I’ll be the first justice in the history of the Supreme Court to have a group of all-women law clerks. That is who I am.”

As I would expect from the standards we have come to expect from the MSM, nothing of this was said during Kavanaughs recent Inquisition.

    HIring only female clerks will likely come back to bite Judge Kavanaugh in the ass. It’s a virtual certainty that one of these clerks is a committed leftist and will eventually make salacious claims about the judge in the future. Kavanaugh needs to take a page from VP Pence and NEVER EVER be alone with a female(s). He must ALWAYS have a male witness in the room and if possible RECORD all such interactions.

    • Apparently the Judge has been favoring female clerks for a long time. It’s a huge boost up for the women getting the opportunity. I hope no one uses the access to try anything.
      Thing is, his courage in this matter can pay dividends in the future by building on the stock of conservative females in the judiciary.
