A progressive watchdog group is accusing Judge Amy Coney Barrett of “unconscionable cruelty.”
Kyle Herrig, president of the progressive watchdog group Accountable.US, told Salon “after a 19-year old pregnant prison inmate was repeatedly raped by a prison guard, Amy Coney Barrett ruled that the county responsible for the prison could not be held liable because the sexual assaults fell outside of the guard’s official duties. Her judgment demonstrates a level of unconscionable cruelty that has no place on the high court.”
He added “The only thing more concerning than the rush to confirm by Senate Republicans is what we are learning about Amy Coney Barrett’s extremist record. It is hardly surprising that she has dodged question after question during her testimony.”
The betting market of PredictIt, gives very high odds for Amy Coney Barrett to be confirmed.
Most analysts believe Democrats may be able to stall, but not stop the confirmation of Barrett.
