[Comment]

Senator Tim Scott has announced that he would not vote to confirm Thomas Farr to a seat on the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of North Carolina.

It would have been an enormous mistake to confirm Thomas Farr to the federal bench, which would have cast a shadow over both the Senate and the judiciary for decades to come.

Farr was plainly unqualified for a lifetime judicial appointment, especially in the Eastern District of North Carolina, where he actively worked to suppress the vote and had ties to a white supremacist group.

A majority of senators have wisely announced their opposition to Farr’s nomination. We are grateful to Senator Scott and others for placing the integrity of our courts ahead of partisan politics.
