WASHINGTON, D.C. – In an investigation of Supreme Court Nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, American Accountability Foundation found she argued that America’s judicial system is “unfair” to sexual predators. Her article originally appeared as an unsigned “Note” in the Harvard Law Review. She only claimed authorship of the controversial article after being forced to disclose it by Senate rules.

In the article, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson writes:

In the current climate of fear, hatred, and revenge associated with the release of convicted sex criminals, courts must be especially atten­tive to legislative enactments that "use[ ] public health and safety rhetoric to justify procedures that are, in essence, punishment and detention. Judges should abandon the prevention/punishment analyses that rely on legislative intent, that routinely apply the Kennedy factors, and that assess the "excessiveness" of a sex offender statute's punitive effects in favor of a more principled approach to characterization. Although “[a precise] analytical solution is almost impossible to construct,” this Note suggests that such a principled approach in­volves assessing the impact of sex offender statutes and deeming the laws "punitive" to the extent that they operate to deprive sex criminals of a legal right in a manner that primarily has retributive or general­ deterrent effects.

“Once again, Joe Biden’s White House has failed in the vetting process by nominating a radical Leftist like Judge Brown Jackson to the highest court in the land,” AAF Founder Tom Jones said. “Americans want our judicial system to protect children and citizens from sexual predators. Judge Brown Jackson’s radical position raises questions on her suitability to serve on the court. Is she more interested in social justice engineering or administering justice?”
