Brett Kavanaugh had quite a tumultuous Supreme Court nomination period. He, of course, faced questions about accusations of sexual assault. He was also pressed on how he would look at cases if he was to make it onto the court.
When asked about Roe vs. Wade, the future judge noted that he would respect precedent. It seems now that Kavanaugh was likely lying about his intentions. One of his neighbors has taken notice. Lacie Wooten-Holway has been organizing protests outside the justice’s Chevy Chase, Maryland house.
Wooten-Holway is a survivor of sexual assault. She said of her actions, “I organize peaceful candlelit vigils in front of his house. … We’re about to get doomsday, so I’m not going to be civil to that man at all.”

According to the Washington Post, “Neighbors tell her this kind of protest is disrespectful in a place they believe should be a private, family-friendly escape from bitter Washington politics. Other people cheer, saying they wouldn’t personally join but are encouraged to see someone speaking out.”
