It’s amazing the lengths the left goes to when attempting to thwart the right. Not unlike the Thomas confirmation hearings, accusations of sexism magically materialized during the first day of hearings for Gorsuch.
NPR puts it’s leftist spin and bias in this story:
A former law student of Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, alleges that in a course she took from Gorsuch at the University of Colorado Law School last year, the judge told his class that employers, specifically law firms, should ask women seeking jobs about their plans for having children and implied that women manipulate companies starting in the interview stage to extract maternity benefits.
The concerns were shared in a letter, posted Sunday evening by the National Employment Lawyers Association and the National Women’s Law Center, written by Jennifer Sisk, a 2016 graduate of the University of Colorado Law School. It was sent on Friday to the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Ranking Member Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.
Sisk sent a letter to the Judiciary committee in order to make sure they asked the right questions. Maybe she wanted to ensure the committee had every opportunity to create fake news and embarrassment under the light of day. It didn’t work though.
Other former students and law students have stepped up to call Sisk out on her accusations.
This characterization is being disputed by Will Hauptman, a current law student at the University of Colorado. Hauptman wrote a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee with his account on Sunday.
“Although Judge Gorsuch did discuss some of the topics mentioned in the letter, he did not do so in the manner described,” Hauptman writes.
He continued, “The judge was very matter-of-fact in that we would face difficult decisions; he himself recalled working late nights when he had a young child with whom he wished to share more time. The seriousness with which the judge asked us to consider these realities reflected his desire to make us aware of them, not any animus against a career or group.”
A group of 11 female former law clerks for Gorsuch also submitted a letter to the committee in support of the nominee.
Nice try, lefties!
