Washington, DC – “We at DC Vote would like to thank Delaware Senator Tom Carper for bringing important attention to the delays of confirming judges for the DC Superior Court in his opening remarks during the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee hearing earlier today. As one of our most recent Champions of Democracy, Senator Carper understands the plight of the 700,000 disenfranchised District residents face and one of the biggest is injustice simply caused by the delay of confirming judges to serve the people of the District of Columbia. He correctly pointed out how leaving open seats on DC’s courts because of the random whims of a Congress where District residents don’t even have a vote equates to justice delayed and justice denied. Quite simply – the judicial injustice Congress heaps on the District of Columbia is an undue burden that could be easily solved with DC Statehood now.”
