Using the death of the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a campaigning tool, one Democratic lawmaker is bragging she’s the “only senator to have worked at Planned Parenthood,” the nation’s largest abortion business.
Sen. Tina Smith (D-Minn.), who has worked as an executive at Planned Parenthood of Minnesota and North and South Dakota, brought up her former employer in a tweet earlier this week, arguing her history as a Planned Parenthood staffer means she has “seen first-hand how far Republican attacks on reproductive rights will go.”
Her Republican opponent, Jason Lewis, responded, writing Smith has “made a career and fortune taking the lives of the unborn and she’s wearing it as a badge of honor.”
“It’s disgraceful,” he added.
Smith’s tweet comes before Trump has formally announced his choice to replace Ginsburg’s seat in the high court. However, according to multiple sources who spoke to CNN, the president is expected to select Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the post.
Trump will name his nominee from the White House Rose Garden Saturday afternoon.
