Why Is The Sierra Club Planning To Campaign Against Neil Gorsuch?

What business does the Sierra Club have involving itself in matters related to the Supreme Court? The truth is that a lot of non-profit groups have been taken over by the left and are used for political activism even if that’s not what they exist for.

The Hill reports:

Sierra Club buying ad to target Gorsuch vote

Environmental group the Sierra Club is set to launch a digital ad urging senators to oppose President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch.

The digital ad buy will be in a five-figure range, and will run in Indiana, Maine, and Colorado — the home states of three undecided Democrats.

The ad will focus on the GOP’s threats to invoke the so-called “nuclear option” and let Supreme Court nominees be confirmed by a simple majority vote.

The nominees currently need to pass a 60-vote threshold to end debate and move to a final vote. Senate Republican leaders have said they will turn to the nuclear option if they can’t get 60 votes for Gorsuch.

“Change the nominee. Not the rules. A Supreme Court justice needs 60 votes,” the Sierra Club ad reads.

Maybe the Sierra Club should stick to climbing mountains and leave the business of the Supreme Court to legal experts.
