Former state senator and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate  Erica Smith endorsed calls for the expansion of the U.S. Supreme Court.. 


"An illegitimate court (Neil Gorsuch & Amy Coney Barrett sit in stolen seats) is reviewing a law that was written by an illegitimate legislature and signed by an illegitimate Governor. Two men, Brett Kavanaugh and  Clarence Thomas who've been credibly accused of sexual misconduct may very well end the freedom of every woman, and childbearing person, in this country to make their own choices about their own body.
"While I urge the Supreme Court to overturn the Texas abortion ban, and Congress to codify Roe, I know that more is needed. Republicans have rigged the system, and packed the courts, so that corporations and dangerous ideologues can have their way. Given that our Democracy and our livelihoods are on the line, it's alarming that the other candidates in this primary have attacked and diminished the idea of expanding the court. We must meet this moment by expanding the number of seats on the Supreme Court. It's the end of voting rights for Black and Brown communities, or it's expanding the court. It's our politicians being owned by dark money, or it's expanding the court. It's the end of Roe v. Wade and reproductive rights, or it's expanding the court.
"Expand the Supreme Court."
