Oppose Sam Clovis for the USDA’s Chief Scientist, because “Science”.

Trump’s pick for the top science spot at the Department of Agriculture has no background in science, is a climate change denier, and a “birther” conspiracy theorist and can’t distinguish between homosexuality and pedophilia.

Script: I’m from [zipcode] and I’m calling Senator [Feinstein/Harris] to vote NO on the spectacularly unqualified Sam Clovis for the position of the USDA’s Chief Scientist.

Senator Feinstein: DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430
Senator Harris: DC (202) 224-3553, LA (213) 894-5000, SAC (916) 448-2787, Fresno (559) 497-5109, SF (415) 355-9041, SD (619) 239-3884

Oppose Brian A. Benczkowski for the Justice Dept., because “Russia”.

The nominee proposed to lead the Justice Dept. criminal division, Brian A. Benczkowski, worked for Alfa Bank, which has ties to Putin. It was a subject of early scrutiny of possible connections between the Trump campaign and Russia. In questioning by Sen. Feinstein, he would not commit to permanently recusing himself from issues with the bank or Mueller’s investigation. Are there no Russia-free candidates?

Oppose Patrick Pizzella for the Deputy Labor Secretary because “Character”.

Trump has nominated sweat-shop promoter Patrick Pizzella for deputy secretary of the Dept. of Labor. Pizzella helped shield an abusive worker camp in the Northern Mariana Islands from federal labor and immigration laws by organizing stage-managed congressional junkets to its “laboratory of liberty”. His complicity in enabling near-slavery conditions means he’ll be a perfect stooge for Trump’s war on workers.

More Info:
Eleanor Lauderdale, the vice president of a union representing DOL workers, said she was “just flabbergasted” when told about Pizzella’s nomination by Trump for the DOL’s number two position. Companies operating on the islands at the time Pizzella and Abramoff represented the CNMI government “had what we called ‘virtual slaves,’” Lauderdale told Bloomberg BNA. That’s why the union opposed Pizzella’s first DOL nomination during the Bush administration.

“We know if you could represent these people who had people behind barbed wire—and we had pictures—that you weren’t someone who should be at Labor,” she said.” (bna)
