Facebook exec throws party for Kavanaugh confirmation and sits behind him at confirmation hearing

Facebook exec throws party for Kavanaugh confirmation.

Joel Kaplan is the chief Washington lobbyist at Facebook.  That’s him sitting behind Kavanaugh at his hearing.

Facebook employees were none too pleased to see a senior executive support Kavanaugh so visibly. He’s not just any executive, he’s also the company’s chief lobbyist. As such, his explanation that he was there in a purely “personal capacity” doesn’t hold water. He’s Facebook’s public face in Washington.

The furor at his employer was so strong that he had to issue an apology for his appearance.

FACEBOOK’S JOEL KAPLAN and his wife LAURA COX KAPLAN hosted a Kavanaugh celebration at their house last night for people who had worked on his nomination. Brett and Ashley Kavanaugh stopped by the gathering of about 25 people that was organized by Laura, Ginger Loper and several other Kavanaugh female supporters. — www.politico.com/… 10/07/2018
