California Professor Goes Public, Speaks Out About Sexual Assault Allegation Against Brett Kavanaugh: ‚ÄúI Thought He Might Kill Me‚ÄĚ
Or will we witness ‚ÄĒ yet again ‚ÄĒ an amoral, power-hungry Republican Party ramming through his confirmation anyway?
Speaking publicly for the first time, Ford said that one summer in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh and a friend ‚ÄĒ both ‚Äústumbling drunk,‚ÄĚ Ford alleges ‚ÄĒ corralled her into a bedroom during a gathering of teenagers at a house in Montgomery County.
While his friend watched, she said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it. When she tried to scream, she said, he put his hand over her mouth.
‚ÄúI thought he might inadvertently kill me,‚ÄĚ said Ford, now a 51-year-old research psychologist in northern California. ‚ÄúHe was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.‚ÄĚ
Ford said she was able to escape when Kavanaugh‚Äôs friend and classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them, sending all three tumbling. She said she ran from the room, briefly locked herself in a bathroom and then fled the house.
This was an incredibly brave step for Professor Ford to take, because she undoubtedly knew what kind of harassment and threats will now be coming her way from the army of deranged Trump cultists.
Oh‚Ä¶ and by the way, Kavanaugh‚Äôs friend Mark Judge has written at least one piece attacking a rape victim for Holocaust denier Chuck C. Johnson‚Äôs blog, too.
Here is a piece by Mark Judge throwing shade on a woman who was gang raped for 3 hours. How many times were Judge & Kavanaugh co-conspirators in sexual assault?!@DerWouter @Agenthades1 @DinaSaS69 https://t.co/0Sqzzrdzdm pic.twitter.com/xGqKPswoj0
The smear begins‚Ä¶
Right wing dirtbags are springing into action, immediately labeling her a ‚Äúfar-left activist,‚ÄĚ based on absolutely nothing, of course. pic.twitter.com/uXaK2noS83
