Republican governor says Kavanaugh allegations 'sickening,' calls on Senate to postpone vote

One of the country's most popular Republican governors on Thursday called for an independent investigation into the allegations made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and said the Senate should hold off on a vote.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker made the comments as Professor Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh sexually and physically assaulted here.

"The accusations brought against Judge Kavanaugh are sickening and deserve an independent investigation," Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker tweeted. "There should be no vote in the Senate."

Baker, who faces re-election this November, is one of only a few Republican governors, all political moderates, to express dissatisfaction with the committee's handling of the allegations made against Kavanaugh. In July, Baker was one of three Republican governors, along with Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, to not sign a letter to Senate leaders offering support for Kavanaugh's nomination.

In an interview with the Burlington Free Press, Vermont's Republican governor encouraged senators to conduct a full investigation and "take your time."(continued)

This guy made it a point to say he wasn’t voting for Trump in 2016.

No one cares, CNN.

I agree that they are sickening, but only in that such unfounded allegations presented AFTER the last minute would be given any credibility.

We’re going to find out if the adults are still in charge.

Reason #2 that I will never live in Massachusetts:

Charlie Baker is the best you're going to get as a Republican in statewide office.

And in case anyone is wondering about Reason #1: Any group of voters that keeps a bloated, drunken slob like Ted Kennedy in office for decades should be collectively euthanized.

Lol! Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker? He doesn’t even qualify as a RINO. He’s basically a democrat who’s just slightly less far left than the average Massachusetts democrat so he had to run with an (R) next to his name to stand a chance of making through the primary.

Charlie must be one of those ‘stuck on stupid’ types of popular republican governors.
Delaying the confirmation is exactly what the dems want.
