CURE Leadership Sign Memo Opposing Biden's Newest Radical Nominee
For immediate release: June 29, 2022
CURE Founder and President Star Parker, as well as Vice President for Government Relations & Coalitions Marty Dannenfelser and CURE Board Member Ken Blackwell, signed the Conservative Action Project’s memo strongly opposing President Biden’s most recent radical nomination of Kalpana Kotagal to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
“Conservatives are strongly opposed to the nomination of Kalpana Kotagal to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC was created to administer and enforce civil rights laws in the workplace, thereby conferring upon it special importance to remain neutral and even-keeled in its application of civil rights law. Confirmation of Ms. Kotagal would dramatically shift the commission’s ideological balance, empowering an attorney activist with a long history of frivolous litigation, anti-law enforcement inclinations, and prejudice against the reliable energy industry.
At the moment, Ms. Kotagal’s nomination remains mired in the Senate HELP Committee due to her controversial and extreme record, where she has thus far failed to receive a majority of votes from members of the committee. Her nomination should not advance any further. Nevertheless, Senate Majority Leader Schumer can force a procedural vote to call her nomination up before the full Senate and bypass the committee process. If confirmed on the floor, Ms. Kotagal will be positioned to weaponize the Biden Administration’s radical progressive agenda against a vast swath of American employers.”
