Calls to oppose Scott Pruitt as EPA head and Betsy DeVos at Education:
Multiple attempts to call Senator Dianne Feinstein’s offices, both in California and D.C. The D.C. number just gave a busy signal, the California office number a “We are sorry, but we can’t answer your call right now due to a high call volume.”
Multiple attempts to call Senator Kamala Harris’s offices, both in San Francisco and D.C. The D.C. number rang a few times and then kicked me over to voicemail, where I left a message. The San Francisco number rang a few times, and then gave me “this mailbox is full and can take no more messages.”
Later today I’ll send emails, if I can’t get through on the phone.
And yes, I know I really should say “oppose every Cabinet pick,” but I am trying to sound a little more focused. I know we’re not going to be able to block every nominee, and these are the two I am most concerned about (other than maybe Rex Tillerson at State).
