South Carolina Sen. announced Thursday he would oppose Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination to the Supreme Court, after accusing her of ‘judicial activism.’
Graham announced his position on the floor – where in the past he cast votes in favor of both of President ‘s high court nominees.
‘I find Judge Jackson to be a person of exceptionally good character, respected by our peers and someone who has worked hard to achieve her current position,’ Graham said.
‘However, her record is overwhelming in its lack of a steady judicial philosophy, and a tendency to achieve outcomes in spite of what the law says,’ he said.
‘I will oppose her and I will vote no,’ said Graham, a former Judiciary Committee chairman.
He is one of three Senate Republicans who voted to confirm Jackson to the U.S.Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit less than a year ago.
Graham also got into heated exchanges with Jackson last week over her child porn sentencing and her past representing detainees at Guantanamo Bay during her Senate confirmation hearing.
