Chief Justice of California Tani Cankil-Sakauye has reportedly renounced her Republican Party registration and re-registered as a no-party-preference voter, citing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Cankil-Sakauye made the comments in a phone interview on Thursday to CALmatters, a nonprofit news organization, saying that she had been thinking about Kavanaugh's September confirmation hearing.
"Ive been thinking about it for some time," Cankil-Sakauye said of her decision. She said that she spoke with her husband and friends about the hearing and their conclusion was that "you didnt leave the party - the party left you."
I felt compelled to make a choice now. It better suits what I do and how I approach issues," Cankil-Sakauye told CALmatters, adding that she has become displeased with the GOP's direction nationally and in her home state.
Cankil-Sakauye has excoriated President Donald Trump for being harmful to the "rule of law" because of his attacks on judges.

...and for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie - 2 Thessalonians 2:11
And here we’ve been lectured - by none other than the SCOTUS head honcho - that judges aren’t political.
YAWN ,who cares
I guess this fool forgot about the Kenyan illegal alien’s attack on the Supreme Court when he was (p)resident. Convenient loss of memory.
What a great loss.
Another brainwashed affirmative action Jackson
If she has a “problem’ with a good man like BK, then she has no business in the GOP
Nor on ANY court
The problem with women is....it’s all about them.
She has the wrong friends.
Na na hey hey...
Most likely wasn’t much of an Republican any ways.
Uh oh, hyphenated last name woman of color alert ! Cankil ?
I’m beginning to think these worthless nobodies attack Trump just so they can get in the headlines and get publicity for themselves.
Okay. Be a democrat in California now, lady. Don’t you feel special?
The fact that Chief Justice Canker-Sore was a registered Republican is surprising in itself. My guess is that she was a Schwarzen-Kennedy appointment, so it's probably no big loss.
and yet not a single substantive allegation was ever proven against Kavanaugh, despite ALL the smearing
anyone who can survive that kind of crucifixion “hearing”
deserves the Medal of Valor
and this “judge” is an idiot
Yeah, that will tech them.
Hyphenated chicks usually lean to the flaky, just like Tanky Cankle-Suckyou here.
California Supremes in general tend to be flaky. Anyone remember Rose Bird?
Hahaha...the only thing better would be to see Trump tweet that nickname tomorrow morning!
She was not Republican. I bet at least half of those who claim that hey are Republican used the R to get elected or appointed.
