Professor Belkin's Call to 'Pack the Courts' Goes Mainstream

Thursday, March 21, 2019

WASHINGTON EXAMINER -- The founder of Pack the Courts is Aaron Belkin, a professor at San Francisco State University, an LGBT activist and the founding director of the Palm Center, a left-wing California think tank that focuses on gender and LGBT military policy. Belkin’s own think tank gave Pack the Courts a $500,000 grant.

Belkin recently explained his motivation: “To nullify the theft of the Garland seat, two justices would have to be added to nullify Gorsuch’s votes and to the extent that President [Trump] obtained the presidency by breaking the law, then two seats would have to be added to nullify the Kavanaugh seat.”

He stated via Twitter: “If we don't pack the Court, SCOTUS will not allow us to restore democracy.”
