Kavanaugh Protests at Topeka Kobach Rally Blog Local News 10/10/2018 Tweet Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Senate on Saturday, October 6 as President Donald Trump flew to Topeka on Air Force One. Protestors stood outside the Kansas Expocentre to protest against Trump, Kris Kobach, and Kavanaugh. “I’m really mad about that,” Linda Falcheck said. “I can’t believe that any of the women in that body could vote yes for Kavanaugh.” Dr. Blasey Ford’s allegation of sexual assault was a topic of controversy throughout the country, leading to a narrow senatorial confirmation of 50-48. Protestors expressed how disappointed they are that he was confirmed. “Justices are supposed to have a good standard and be a non-partisan body that votes in the favor of the law and Kavanaugh is very much not that,” Emma Persinger said.
