Thank you, Archila and Gallagher!

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) cornered in elevator.

The Democrats wouldn’t do it. The Republicans wouldn’t do it. But after Ana Maria Archila and Maria Gallagher cornered Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) in an elevator yesterday and demanded he act, things started changing. When Sen. Flake returned to the hearing room, he worked out a deal to allow one week for the FBI to further investigate the Kavanaugh/Ford impasse.

What would have been an immediate vote to advance Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination became a one-week postponement, thanks to two brave women who faced down a senator and demanded justice … and, of course, Sen. Flake’s commendable move to do the right thing. Kudos to all three.

        1. As Sen Warren, said Washington now needs a good shake up and a woman to set them back on track; or words to that effect. I think she might be right, women are much braver than men when it comes to making the big decisions. I’ve always believed that if women ran the world there’s never be any wars.
