Professor Bainbridge has dug up the political contributions of the members of the ABA committee that reviews judicial nominees, and downgraded Brett Kavanaugh. His conclusion:
If the political leanings of the non-givers track those of the givers, Democrats may hold a 10-5 advantage on the committee. Also, note that while two of the Republicans made just a single contribution, all but one of the 6 Democrats made multiple contributions, from which we might reasonably infer a greater degree of partisan commitment on the part of the Democrats on the committee than that of the Republican minority.
