Mass Impact: The Post-Kavanaugh Stench in Bay State Elections

The confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States is likely to take on a prominent role in at least two major statewide Mass elections next month.

Rep. Geoff Diehl, who handily won the Republican primary in September to take on Sen. Elizabeth Warren for her US Senate seat, has expressed support for Kavanaugh and dismissed allegations of sexual assault against the judge from victims dating back decades.

“I don’t think there’s any testimony or evidence at this point that indicate that anything inappropriate happened,” Diehl said of the attempted rape claim by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. He continued, “Unless we hear otherwise, he’s completed the process that would satisfy me.”

Diehl’s stance on the Supreme Court appointment could have been expected.
