Notre Dame has over 1,000 faculty members. None of those who signed the letter work in the ND law school.
MSNBC analyst and author of books on Democratic presidents Jonathan Alter tweeted that 88 colleagues of Judge Amy Coney Barrett at Notre Dame signed a letter against her nomination to SCOTUS.
One thing: None belong to Notre Dame Law School. They are also members of a group called “Teacher-Scholar-Activist.”

I wonder if Barrett ever met Jason Springs, professor of Peace Studies. How about Amy Mulligan, professor of Irish, Medieval Studies, and Gener Studies?
These people, who again are not at the law school, insist Barrett must withdraw based on the exact same talking points given by the Democrats:
- Rushed nomination, too close to the election
- Respect RBG’s dying wish
- Nomination happening “at a treacherous moment in the United States.”
Oh, the replies are fantastic.

Not sure how she'll recover from losing someone from the Medieval Studies department

So a group of leftwing academics share a letter on a blog that uses the radical fist symbol that matches the communist fist of USSR.
They don't want a conservative nominee.
