Citing Brett Kavanaugh appointment, California Supreme Court Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye has quit the GOP

In California, the GOP scores below "no party preference" in voter registration, but much of the state's elites — business leaders, prosecutors, judges — have remained Republican, even as the party has moved away from overt support of unlimited capitalism supported by quiet racism and misogyny to overt racism and misogyny as a smokescreen for quiet support of unlimited capitalism.

The latest casualty: California Chief Supreme Court Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, a lifelong Republican, who had previously objected to Jeff Sessions' terror campaign against immigrants but who finally quit over the appointment of the rapey drunkard Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Cantil-Sakauye also cited Trump's assaults on the judicial branch as reasons for leaving the party.

"I've been thinking about it for some time," Cantil-Sakauye said, adding that she talked it over with her husband and friends. Their consensus, she said, was that "you didn't leave the party. The party left you."
