DES MOINES, IOWA – Tomorrow at noon the Why Courts Matter Iowa coalition will present the ‘Turkey of the Year’ award to Senator Grassley at his office in downtown Des Moines. Grassley will receive this dubious honor in recognition of his historic obstruction of judicial nominees during his first chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Why Courts Matter Iowa has adopted Pepper, a turkey from Sanctuary Farms, in Senator Grassley’s name, in order to ‘pardon’ it prior to Thanksgiving. The coalition will present the Senator with the certificate of adoption as well as a picture of Pepper.

A number of nominees are being held up by Senator Grassley in the Judiciary Committee, and he has the authority to stop the obstruction and move them forward. Why Courts Matter Iowa has held demonstrations every Wednesday at Noon during October and November in order to highlight the importance of moving these nominations forward.
