An Open Letter To Senator Barack Obama









VIA FAX: (202) 228-4260

January 28, 2006

Senator Barack Obama
713 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510

Dear Senator Obama:

I write to ask that you actively support the filibuster of Judge Samuel Alito and encourage your colleagues to do so as well.

Judge Alito has proven to be far outside the mainstream of even conservative thought in this country, let alone the thought of the citizens of Illinois. His lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court would be a major setback for all Illinoisans who favor giving women more control of the reproductive rights, not less, and giving the President less authority to make unilateral decisions without Congressional approval, not more.

A vote on the nomination of a would-be Supreme Court justice is one of the most important duties we ask of our senators. Now, more than ever, it is critical that Democrats such as yourself be on record as vigorously opposing any action on the part of this administration and this Congress to further erode the Constitutional rights of all Americans.

Do not fear the so-called backlash many Republican politicians and right-wing pundits predict will befall those who vote against this nominee. Only those who didn’t vote their conscience will feel the repercussions, so let your conscience guide you now. Whether your vote prevails in this matter is an issue over which you have no control; the important thing, however, is to do what is just and what is right.

I hope you will use your considerable influence to promote and support a filibuster and vote “no” on this nomination should the filibuster not prevail.

signed
