Californians Take Action: Oppose Honaker Nomination

Yesterday, representatives of Alliance for Justice, CREDO (formerly Working Assets), Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and Equal Justice Society met with staff in Senator Feinstein’s San Francisco office to discuss their opposition to the nomination of Richard Honaker to the federal district court in Wyoming.

Throughout his career, Mr. Honaker has actively worked to undermine a woman's right to reproductive freedom. On behalf of Californians for Fair and Independent Judges and other concerned constituents, they urged Senator Feinstein - who will chair Mr. Honaker’s nomination hearing next Tuesday - to ask tough questions about Mr. Honaker’s extreme record and not be swayed by empty promises to “follow the law.” In order to highlight the importance of the issue to the people of California, the representatives also brought with them almost 6000 letters to Senator Feinstein from constituents imploring her to reject Mr. Honaker’s nomination.
