PRESIDENT BIDEN NOMINATES KETANJI BROWN JACKSON TO SUPREME COURT: “For too long, our government, our courts, haven’t looked like America,” Biden said Friday at the White House as he stood alongside Brown Jackson and Vice President Kamala Harris. Born in Washington, D.C., Brown Jackson, 51, spent the bulk of her youth in South Florida where her father, Johnny Brown, worked as an attorney for the Miami-Dade School Board and her mother, Ellery Brown, worked as a high school principal. After earning her graduate and law degrees from Harvard University, Brown Jackson early in her career served as law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, the retiring justice she’s been tapped to succeed. Progressive groups applauded the selection of Brown Jackson, arguing she would bring a needed perspective to the court as it weighs a host of issues that affect women and communities of color. No doubt Republican operatives are digging furiously to find anything they can use to criticize her. Or they will just make something up, which is just fine post-Trump.
