EXCLUSIVE: A conservative outside group launched digital ads Friday against Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson accusing President Biden‘s Supreme Court nominee of being too lenient on child pornography offenders and urging a dozen senators to vote against her confirmation.
The digital ads by the Article III Project, shared first with Fox News Digital, take aim at Jackson’s sentencing of eight child pornography offenders when she was a federal court judge and handed down prison time that was less than what prosecutors recommended and what sentencing guidelines allowed. In one case, the ad states, she ordered a three-month sentence when federal guidelines allowed for eight years in prison.
“Activist judges like Ketanji Brown Jackson are more concerned about the well-being of pedophiles than the safety of your children — and thanks to her, they may be living in your neighborhood,” the ad says.
The digital ads will focus on a dozen senators — both swing state Democrats and more moderate Republicans — including Republican Sens. Mitt Romney in Utah and Lisa Murkowski in Alaska, who have not yet announced how they’ll vote on Jackson. The five-figure ad buy, which may expand to TV, will also target Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who have already said they’d vote “yes” to confirm Jackson.
The ads are also tailored to the pair of Democratic senators in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada and New Hampshire.
“Any senator who votes to confirm Judge Jackson to the Supreme Court will be voting for someone who thinks child sex predators are treated too harshly according to federal guidelines,” said Mike Davis, founder and president of Article III Project. “There is not a punishment harsh enough for these monsters.”
Davis said Article III will continue to press the issue of Jackson’s sentences until the midterm elections.
“This will be a career-ending vote for many Democrats and Republicans if they support Judge Jackson’s elevation to the Supreme Court of the United States with her troubling and unvetted record,” Davis said.
