KAVANAUGH NOMINATION CANNOT GO FORWARD WITH CREDIBLE ACCUSATION OF ATTEMPTED RAPE AGAINST HIM


On Sunday Professor Christine Ford came forward with details of Kavanaugh’s attempted rape when she was 15.

  • Kavanaugh and his friend, both highly intoxicated, grabbed her, forced her into a bedroom, locked the door
  • Kavanaugh pinned her down, groped her, tried to disrobe her, attempted to rape her
  • When she screamed, he put his hand over her mouth, while a friend turned up music to drown out her cries. She feared he might kill her.

Compelling corroborating evidence:

  • Disclosed status as assault survivor to her husband over decade ago
  • Provided details and attacker’s name to her therapist long before Kavanaugh’s nomination
  • Passed former FBI agent-administered polygraph test

Republicans rushed Kavanaugh’s hearing to avoid providing the Senate and American people his full record. This secrecy and rule-bending should be disqualifying on its face.

Now we have misogynist Trump—who has Greg Walden’s full support—nominating an alleged sexual predator for Supreme Court. Of course, Kavanaugh denies the allegations—but who can trust him? We know KavaNOT lies like a Trump!

We cannot let the Judiciary Committee demonize and silence Professor Ford, as happened to Anita Hill—insulting women and the integrity of the Supreme Court.

No Judicial Committee Action on KavaNOT until . . .

Full FBI Investigation of Professor Ford’s Claim!

All KavaNOT Records Released and Analyzed!


**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS MERKLEY AND WYDEN:
(Leave a message if you can’t get through)

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling to thank Senator [*] for his continued opposition to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. Professor Ford has presented corroborated evidence that Kavanaugh attempted to rape her when she was 15 years old. Ms. Ford’s allegations must be fully investigated, and all witnesses must testify under oath before the Senate proceeds further on this nomination. Please ask the Senator to do everything in his power to ensure that (1) the Judiciary Committee delays further proceedings until the allegations have been fully investigated, or (2) McConnell agrees to withdraw Kavanaugh’s nomination, (3) no Senate vote occurs until all the records are released and the Mueller investigation has cleared Trump. Thank you.”
