Democratic Nominee for Attorney General Sean Shaw had this to say about the vote:
Brett Kavanaugh and I agree on one thing: his nomination process has been disgraceful. He repeatedly lied to the Judiciary Committee and polluted his confirmation hearings with a flurry of conspiracy-minded partisan accusations. He dodged questions about his character by pointing to his academic pedigree and showed a temperament that should be disqualifying for any potential Supreme Court Justice. At every opportunity, Brett Kavanaugh has made clear that he thinks the rules don’t apply to him. No American is above the rule of law, not even Donald Trump or Brett Kavanaugh. Members of the highest Court should be beyond reproach. #BelieveSurvivors
About Sean Shaw
Raised in North Florida, Representative Sean Shaw was taught the importance of public service from a young age by his father, Leander Shaw, the first African-American Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court. During law school at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, Sean clerked for a United States District Court judge focusing on constitutional law and the protection of civil rights. After law school, Sean worked in private practice representing workers, families, and small businesses during some of their most trying times.
As Florida’s Insurance Consumer Advocate, Sean was an insurance industry watchdog protecting consumers against abuses from insurers. He led the process of negotiating lower rates for homeowners, pushed for faster response times from insurers after emergencies, and ensured rates were fair and justified. He currently represents State House District 61 in Tampa, where he has fought for more funding for public education, for criminal justice reforms, and for common sense gun safety legislation to make communities safer. Sean has been endorsed by national organizations such as MoveOn.Org and Moms Demand Action, and Florida based organizations like the Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida, Florida Conservation Voters, Florida AFL-CIO, and SEIU Florida.
