Joni Ernst backs an unqualified judicial nominee, abandons domestic violence survivors, and might have (probably) broken the law. What a week.
Matt and Lauren are joined by Paul Gordon, Senior Legislative Counsel for People for the American Way. Paul works on a variety of issues and regularly engages with government officials and national and state coalitions on judicial nominations to ensure that our courts have highly qualified, independent judges. They discuss Joni Ernst's recent vote to confirm Sarah Pitlyk, the most recent Trump nominee the American Bar Association deemed "unqualified" to sit on the bench.
What a Week is produced by Progress Iowa as part of the Potluck Media Network and would not be possible without grassroots supporters like you. We are recorded, mixed, and edited by Greg Hauenstein.--- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/progress-iowa/message
