NO ROOM ON SUPREME COURT FOR ANOTHER SEXUAL ABUSER


Despite new sexual abuse allegations against Kavanaugh, and the demand from Dems to postpone the hearing, the Judiciary Committee is still convening a kangaroo court on Thursday, ensuring Dr. Ford’s vilification will be even worse than Professor Hill’s.

Numerous reasons to doubt Kavanaugh’s fitness for the Supreme Court existed BEFORE women came forward:

  • Nominee with out-of-mainstream positions and lowest popularity
  • KavaNOT is Trump’s “get-out-of-jail-free” card
  • He lied under oath about activities in Bush White House and possibly Judge Kozinski
  • The mostly hidden record prevented a transparent process

Kavanaugh’s alleged attempted rape of Dr. Ford is more highly corroborated than many criminal prosecutions—thus not a “he said/she said” situation:

  • Discussed it with therapists/ husband years earlier
  • Sought FBI investigation, knowing that lying to the FBI is a felony
  • If lying, Dr. Ford wouldn’t have placed  Kavanaugh’s friend, Mark Judge, at the scene
  • Passed lie detector test
  • Kavanaugh’s frequent intoxication makes denial non-credible
  • Getting girls drunk and sexually assaulting them common for Judge and friends
  • Kavanaugh and Judge demeaned women both in high school and college
  • Ramirez’s account that Kavanaugh exposed himself when highly intoxicated at a party

Kavanaugh hearing is a job interview—not a criminal trial requiring proof beyond reasonable doubtand these allegations would sink any job candidate.

Demand that Kavanaugh Withdraw from Nomination!


**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. Her story has been further supported by Ms. Ramirez’s account of Kavanaugh exposing himself to her. These serious, credible allegations demonstrate that Kavanaugh is unfit for a position on the Supreme Court. Please ask the Senator to do everything in his power to ensure that (1) Trump is forced to withdraw the nomination, (2) the Thursday Judiciary Committee hearing is postponed until these allegations have been fully investigated, (3) if any further Judiciary Committee hearings are held, Kavanaugh, Ford, Ramirez, and all other witnesses located must be allowed to testify under oath, and (4) no Senate vote occurs until all of Kavanaugh’s records are released and the Mueller investigation has cleared Trump. Thank you.”

**ACTION TWO: TELL OUR SENATORS HOW A KAVANAUGH CONFIRMATION WILL AFFECT YOUR LIFE**

What will happen to your life if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court? And if there is no more coverage for preexisting conditions? No birth control? No abortion access? Less gun control? Less voting rights? How has his nomination set back women’s rights? Further traumatized sexual assault survivors?

Send your stories to policy@indivisibleOR.org and they will get them to Senators Wyden and Merkley.
