A newly hired lecturer at Georgetown Law, Ilya Shaprio was put on leave after posting multiple tweets about Biden’s promise to select a black woman for the U.S. Supreme Court. In one of the tweets, Shapiro said Biden “would nominate not ‘the objectively best pick’ but a ‘lesser Black woman’ to be the next Supreme Court justice.” Georgetown’s move came one day before Shapiro “had been scheduled to assume his role as a senior lecturer and the executive director of the Georgetown Center for the Constitution, which is part of the law school.” Shapiro expressed regret over his tweets, but he maintained that they were not grounds for disciplinary action by the law school. His case is still pending.
