Mark Begich: Staunch Supporter of Obama’s Court-Packing

by Carrie Severino

Today, the Judicial Crisis Network released this ad, which will be running on TV stations in Alaska. Like certain other senators, when Senator Begich is in Washington, he votes for radical judicial appointees who will undermine the Second Amendment, energy independence, and traditional social values. But when Senator Begich goes home to Alaska, he turns around and claims to support the very rights and values that these radical judges will attack. We recently released two ads pointing out the same sort of inconsistencies in the voting of Senators Mark Pryor (D. Ark) and Mary Landrieu (D., La.). Just after that, Senator Pryor voted—for the very first time—against an Obama judicial appointee. Hopefully this new ad will help Senator Begich see the light.
