Jackson’s sentencing on child pornography cases was the most prominent and harshest line of GOP questioning over two long days of testimony last week in the Senate Judiciary Committee. GOP Sens. Josh Hawley of Missouri, Ted Cruz of Texas, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina all brought up the issue in sometimes confrontational questioning during her confirmation hearings, writes Article 3 Project.
Graham cited Jackson’s “evasive” responses and decisions to not lock up these sex offenders for longer periods of time when he announced Thursday he’d vote against her confirmation. Graham last year was one of three Republicans who voted in favor of Jackson’s elevation to the D.C. appellate court.
