Fire John Cornyn

On Civil Rights

Senator Cornyn is no champion of civil rights or racial justice. He started out supporting George Wallace (Mr. “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever” himself) in the 60s, for crying out loud.

Scorecards & Endorsements

But don’t take our word for it. Look at all these F- grades (including zeroes!) he’s earned in his long, white legislative career.

Org ’12 ’16 ’17 ’18 ’19
ACLU 7% 0% (!)
NAACP 0% (!) 18% 11% 13%

(Those scores aren’t very good, but the National Association of Police Organizations gave Cornyn a perfect 100% rating, so there’s that.)
