Mere hours after he was confirmed and inaugurated to the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, whom the left has dubbed a pervasive hater and oppressor of women, became the first SCOTUS justice to hire an all-female clerk team. 

“Those four women — Kim Jackson, Shannon Grammel, Megan Lacy, and Sara Nommensen — were at the Supreme Court on Sunday, aiding Kavanaugh ahead of his first case hearings this week,” The Week reports.

On top of that, Jackson will be one of only three black law clerks for the Supreme Court.

Porter Wilkinson, who once clerked for Kavanaugh, told the New York Times that hiring and promoting women has long been a habit of Kavanaugh’s. The NYT reports:

“He’s been promoting professional opportunities for women his entire career,” said Porter Wilkinson, who served as a law clerk to Justice Kavanaugh when he was an appeals court judge and who was on his confirmation team.

The news comes after a bitter nearly month-long fight to confirm Kavanaugh, who was accused by several women of sexual misconduct stemming back from his high schoool and college days. During his denial of the allegations before the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month, Kavanaugh had touted his plan to hire four female law clerks after his confirmation.
