Newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has just hired more minority clerks than leftist hero Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has in her entire 25 years on the bench.
Not that he’ll get any credit from the unhinged, un-American, hate-filled left, of course.
According to Daily Caller, Kavanaugh has already made his office more diverse than nearly any other:
Justice Brett Kavanaugh has hired a black law clerk for his new chambers at the U.S. Supreme Court, matching Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s record of African-American clerkship hiring during her tenure on the nation’s highest judicial tribunal.
With his first clerkship hires, Kavanaugh also set a gender composition record, an apparent attempt to buck the high court’s hiring patterns, which tend to favor white, male graduates of elite law schools.
Since joining the high court in 1993, Ginsburg has hired over 100 law clerks, just one of whom is black.
Ginsburg’s hiring practices have been criticized for decades. During her 1993 confirmation hearings, GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah asked Ginsburg if a court might reasonably conclude that a small business in a majority black city that hired 57 white employees and zero black employees over a period of years was discriminatory. Ginsburg dodged, before Hatch pointed out that was in fact her own record of clerkship hiring in her 13 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
Daily Caller also reported the names of Kavanaugh’s new associates:
Kavanaugh’s new clerks are Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy, Sara Nommensen and Kim Jackson. These hires set a record in a second respect: Kavanaugh is the first Supreme Court justice to hire an all female class of clerks.
Now, what was that the left kept saying? That Kavanaugh hated blacks, hated women, hated all minorities? Yeah, that is the normal left-wing mantra, isn’t it.
So, do you think Justice Kavanaugh will ever get any credit? No, of course now.
But, as before, he carries on doing what he thinks is right.
