Shreveport mayoral candidate denies he endorsed Kavanaugh for Supreme Court

Nick Wooten, Shreveport Times

Published 5:14 p.m. CT Sept. 17, 2018

Shreveport mayoral candidate Adrian Perkins said Monday that his name was used without his consent in a letter praising embattled U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Perkins was one of eight current or former members of the Harvard Law School's chapter of the Black Law Students Association who supposedly signed a letter commending Kavanaugh's work with students at Harvard Law School.

The letter was read aloud by Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, during Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing Sept. 5.

According to the letter, Kavanaugh attended a panel March 27 along with another federal appellate judge to provide information to members of Black Law Students Association about clerkships.

Perkins, 32, denied in an interview that he gave permission for his name to be used in the document.

The candidate graduated earlier this year from Harvard Law School. A Democrat, he is one of eight candidates who will vie in the Nov. 6 election to become Shreveport's mayor.

Perkins said he was contacted by Harvard Law student Merve Ciplak via email Sept. 6, one day after the hearing at which the letter was read. Ciplak told Perkins that the Harvard Law Record was looking into the Kavanaugh document and that there was a "question of the support of some of the signers."

Perkins told Ciplak that he did not authorize the use of his name on the document. Attempts to reach Ciplak were unsuccessful.




Hey Mike Crapo, did you by some strange chance call "all" of the individuals in this "letter" to verify that this is accurate and did you by some strange chance call this Merve Ciplak, and did you by chance have the FBI vet this to make sure that this true before you commented on this, are you that incompetent.....................me thinks so?

And your a sitting senator.....................you know like vetting...........................because, if this Federalist Society asshole is just willy nilly putting and throwing names out on some piece of paper and they were not there or endorsed your lying Federalist Society asshole......................this is also a big problem........................

I do not remember having any witnesses called on this issue, not one......................nothing by this Crapo, "guy", his last name says everything, and yes I am being condescending, he is full of the proverbial crap...................this is amazing, you have this Perkins saying he didn't do it and then we have this Harvard Law student Merve Ciplak asking the question and not saying anything or making any comments, and then we have the Harvard Law Record doing exactly what.......................but the public gets Crapo entering into the record, like it was checked................and Crapo, failed in his job description like asking.................has this been verified.................nope......................someone is lying......................... and then there is the Grassley, McConnell, Trump.........fast track of BS.......................
