Suburban women wrestle with Kavanaugh allegations

2 monthes ago   |   By

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. - For women like Jayne A. Cordes, the steady stream of investigations in Washington is exhausting. That's why, when Christine Blasey Ford came forward to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her more than three decades ago, it struck Cordes as the latest example of the ceaseless - and needless - drama in the capital.
“It's shenanigans,” said Cordes, an independent who voted for President Donald Trump and lives in the suburbs south of Denver. “It just seems like everybody is open to any kind of allegation because they don't like...

Attacks on Feinstein backfire on California challenger

2 monthes ago   |   By

Kevin de León, Sen. Dianne Feinstein's November opponent, accused her last week of “gross misconduct” for waiting months to flag a sexual assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh - seizing on the Supreme Court firestorm to jump-start his long-shot campaign. Now de León is facing a backlash for his own handling of sexual harassment on his watch in the California legislature, which has been rocked by allegations of pervasive sexual misconduct.

2 monthes ago   |   By

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the California psychology professor who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when the two were in high school in the 1980s, has become the target of a disinformation campaign on social media.

How the U.S. Senate Became a Campus Kangaroo Court

2 monthes ago   |   By

Christine Blasey Ford deserves a hearing, although at the moment it's not clear if she really wants one. What she doesn't deserve is to be believed automatically just because she's a woman making an accusation. When our system of justice is at its best, it judges each individual-the accuser and the accused-fairly, on the basis of the evidence, and with an adversarial process that has proved over the centuries the best way to ascertain the truth. Ford's charge is serious by any standard, and despite the shameful way it was handled-Senator Dianne Feinstein sat on it for weeks, until it...

Dem senator: We'll probe Kavanaugh allegations if we win in November

2 monthes ago   |   By

Democrats will “get to the bottom” of Christine Blasey Ford's sexual assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh if they take control of the House or Senate after this fall's midterms, one Senate Judiciary Committee member said Thursday. Sen.

Whitehouse's comments point to a continued Democratic focus on Kavanaugh that could help turn out liberal voters in November...

As of Thursday morning, attorneys representing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's accuser , Christine Blasey Ford, had yet to respond to the Republican-run Senate Judiciary Committee's offer to hear her testimony next Monday.
