The father of a slain Parkland student said the Supreme Court nominee refused to shake his hand Tuesday, but the White House disputes the characterization.
Fred Guttenberg, who became a vocal gun control advocate after the loss of his daughter in February, was at the first day of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearings on Judge Brett Kavanaugh at the invite of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. The activist said as the hearing broke for lunch that he approached the federal judge and was rebuffed.
“Just walked up to Judge Kavanaugh as morning session ended,” tweeted Guttenberg.”Put out my hand to introduce myself as Jaime Guttenberg’s dad. He pulled his hand back, turned his back to me and walked away. I guess he did not want to deal with the reality of gun violence.”
