Dear Senator Collins,
I can’t tell you how proud I am of your decision to vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Justice.
Those who disagree with you have called you everything from a “rape apologist” to “an abomination.” Why? Because you refuse to convict a man of a crime when no evidence of his involvement has been provided.
It would have been easy for you to do the politically expedient thing, the popular thing, and vote against Judge Kavanaugh. Instead, you are standing on the principle that every American is to be considered as innocent before proven guilty. Even this white man.
As a result, you are being branded as a traitor to women and an enabler of sex criminals by the very people you strive to represent.
To those of us who still believe in real justice and fairness, unfettered by political fears and personal motivations, you, Madam, are a hero.
