Senator Grassley needs to take politics out of the Courts and do his job.
Will you help us remind him that we expect him to do his job?
As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Grassley can take the lead in making sure that our courts are fully operational… and that IS his job.
BUT, the Senator continues to issue confusing statements around his issue, mainly indicating his desire to wait until the next President is elected to even consider a nominee, which would mean Senator Grassley is refusing to take his constitutional obligations seriously: his role is to advise and consent to the President’s nominee, not play political games.
There are many ways to make your voice heard!
You can CLICK HERE to sign our petition today (for every petition signature we receive, we will deliver a copy of the Constitution to Senator Grassley, to remind him of his responsibility)…
You can write letters to the editor…
You can call, email or write the Senator at:
Senator Chuck Grassley
35 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington DC 20510

…and you can keep up to date on developments by “liking” us on Facebook at Why Courts Matter Iowa.
We’ve been hearing lots about each political party playing games in the past with the Courts BUT that does not make it right or a precedent we want to see continued.
In fact, in 2008, an election year and the last year President Bush was in office, there was a debate about confirmations. Senator Grassley said “the reality is the Senate has never stopped confirming judicial nominees during the last few months of a President’s term.”
We are working with our coalition Why Courts Matter Iowa to let him know what Iowans expect. Will you add your name to our petition to Senator Grassley? Together, let’s send him a message that we expect him to do his constitutional duty as a Senator and as Chair of the Judiciary Committee.
As always, thank you for all you do. Please feel free to forward this information to anyone you think would be interested. –Sue Dinsdale, Executive Director, ICAN; Sdinsdale@iowacan.org
