In case you weren’t already aware, John Fetterman, the Frankenstein-esque candidate who won the Pennsylvania senate race, is about as far to the left as Bernie Sanders.
Naturally, a person like that is going to attract other people on the far left.
It’s now being reported that one of his top aides is a big fan of court packing.
From FOX News:
John Fetterman’s top aide is outspoken court packing activist: ‘This is all about power’
Sen.-elect John Fetterman’s, D-Pa., incoming chief of staff has repeatedly called for Democrats to expand the Supreme Court to ensure liberal rulings.
Adam Jentleson — who previously worked in top roles for former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and for multiple liberal organizations — has argued that a conservative majority on the Supreme Court would cause suffering. He has stated that Democrats must fight back by expanding the number of justices on the court.
“There’s no downplaying the suffering [Justice Amy Coney Barrett] can cause from the bench. But to get her there, McConnell laid bare that this is all about power and Dems are poised to gain a lot of power a week from now. We have to vote,” Jentleson tweeted on Oct. 26, 2020. “Then Dems have to use the power we give them to expand the court.”
“If you are not willing to reform the filibuster and expand the court, you are not willing to do what it takes to win this fight,” he added in a Sept. 1, 2021 tweet. “If we keep playing beanbag while they play hardball, the results will be more of this. It’s that simple.”

This is the team that Pennsylvania voters just put in the Senate.
What a disaster.
