Ketanji Brown Jackson is an exemplary choice for the Supreme Court, asserts Erwin Chemerinsky in Yahoo News. The Republican attempt to smear her character is born from pure partisanship. She graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Law School and has a huge amount of experience as a judge and clerking for judges. GOP members attack her for her work, claiming she was too soft in child pornography cases when her sentences were in line with US probation office recommendations. Jackson's record is impeccable, but Republicans still resort to vicious personal attacks that are baseless because it will benefit them politically.
Ketanji Brown Jackson's record of being lenient with child pornography offenders is worrying, argues Josh Hawley in Fox News. She has long campaigned to ease punishment for sex offenders. Her sentences were repeatedly overly lenient and ignored sentencing recommendations. Jackson believes in reforming how we judge these cases, but she needs to remember she is representing the people. Americans have shown clearly that they favor harsher sentences for sex and child pornography offenders. Softer sentences in the past didn't help slow the growth of child pornography crimes. Jackson should understand this before rising to the Supreme Court.
