Another 1st for Sen. Blackburn

Our new senator will serve on the Senate Judiciary Committee. According to the the Washington Examiner, that will be the first time Republicans will have women on the panel.

Senator Blackburn will be joined by Iowa Senator Joni Ernst on the committee. Democrats have had women on the panel, but Republicans have not until now.

It’s not official yet, but a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell believes it is likely.
“Everyone knows Republicans need women on Judiciary,” said Marilyn Musgrave, the vice president of anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List. “It will take away the critics asking, ‘Where are the women?’”
Last year’s committee consisted of
Chuck Grassley, Iowa, Chairman
Orrin Hatch, Utah
Lindsey Graham, South Carolina
John Cornyn, Texas
Mike Lee, Utah
Ted Cruz, Texas
Ben Sasse, Nebraska
Jeff Flake, Arizona
Mike Crapo, Idaho
Thom Tillis, North Carolina
John Kennedy, Louisiana

This year’s committee appears to be:
Lindsey Graham, South Carolina, Chairman
Chuck Grassley, Iowa
John Cornyn, Texas
Mike Lee, Utah
Ted Cruz, Texas
Ben Sasse, Nebraska
Mike Crapo, Idaho
Thom Tillis, North Carolina
John Kennedy, Louisiana
Josh Hawley, Missouri[5]
Marsha Blackburn, Tennessee
Joni Ernst, Iowa

We got rid of Flake, but are still stuck with Ben Sasse, the ass from Nebraska. He likes to throw a monkey wrench into proceedings. It is good to have Senator Blackburn on it to represent Tennessee and American values.
