AOC: ‘Expand the court.’

AOC hearing with FBI e1612395839691

After Republicans in the Senate confirmed the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court Monday night, many progressive Democrats were upset that the opposing party would push through a nominee weeks before the presidential election and called for measures to shift the now 6-3 conservative majority on the nation’s highest court.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY, says it’s time to “Expand the court.” Court-packing has been a major point of contention ahead of Tuesday’s election. And former Vice President Joe Biden has yet to answer to whether he intends to do just that after harshly criticizing the President’s decision to nominate Justice Barrett.

Despite Biden’s silence, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez was clear that Democrats should be just as aggressive as Republicans right now in pushing their agenda through.

“Republicans do this because they don’t believe Dems have the stones to play hardball like they do,” Rep. Ocasio Cortez added. “And for a long time they’ve been correct. But do not let them bully the public into thinking their bulldozing is normal but a response isn’t. There is a legal process for expansion.”

San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”

“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.

The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”

Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
