Hillary Clinton’s former campaign spokesman is leading a “dark money” campaign to get Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh fired from his summer teaching job at George Mason University, according to a new report.

Fox News reported that Brian Fallon, who served as Clinton’s 2016 national spokesman, is backing an effort to prevent Kavanaugh from teaching for the university this summer. Fallon leads Demand Justice, a progressive advocacy group that does not disclose its funding.

The effort, which has been dubbed “Mason 4 Survivors,” is circulating a petition that has so far garnered more than 5,000 signatures. The group is urging George Mason president Angel Cabrera to “terminate AND void ALL contracts and affiliation with Brett Kavanaugh at George Mason University.”

“There is a historic amount of institutional negligence on your part to support survivors of sexual assault and the student body as a whole, which has bred a sense of mistrust and suffering within the Mason community and allies,” the petition claims.

According to HuffPost, Fallon’s group is running a Facebook advertisement campaign that targets anyone connected with George Mason University urging them to sign the petition. The ad also directs targeted users to sign a separate petition that calls on Congress to investigate Kavanaugh.

Though sexual misconduct allegations surfaced against Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court confirmation process last, none of the accusations ever proved credible.

It was announced last month that Kavanaugh would join George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School as a distinguished visiting professor. He is set to co-teach a two-credit course this summer in England called “Creation of the Constitution.”

Kavanaugh’s appointment was met with immediate pushback and protests.

Fortunately, Cabrera has defended Kavanaugh’s appointment, saying in a statement last month that the university will not revoke Kavanaugh’s appointment.

“I respect the views of people who disagreed with Justice Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation due to questions raised about his sexual conduct in high school. But he was confirmed and is now a sitting Justice,” Cabrera said.

“The law school has determined that the involvement of a U.S. Supreme Court Justice contributes to making our law program uniquely valuable for our students.”

    Kavanaugh didn’t do anything: They just hate him because he loves the Constitution. What they’re doing can’t be legal. There must be a way to prosecute them for slander, terrorism, something.

    “Dark Money” is simply what they call money donated to 501 C 3 advocacy groups. Donors are not required to disclose their identity whereas 501 C 4 political advocacy groups that have to reveal their donors. It is set up that way to protect donors for non-political groups from being harrassed or pestered.

    Every student from George Mason that calls for Justice Kavanaugh to be removed should be expelled from the school based on morals violations and dishonesty. Apply the same standard they want to apply, all we need is an unsubstantiated allegation and they are out. I have a better approach. Give them due process they don’t want to give to Justice Kavanaugh. Each and every one of them should be required to come forward with proof, not unproved allegations, that Justice Kavanaugh did what they claim. When they don’t come up with valid proof, kick them out.
