Brett Kavanaugh apparently had a pretty wild youth, going from one drunken revel and sexual assault to another. Ronan Farrow, the New Yorker:

A third male student then exposed himself to her. “I remember a penis being in front of my face,” she said. “I knew that’s not what I wanted, even in that state of mind.” She recalled remarking, “That’s not a real penis,” and the other students laughing at her confusion and taunting her, one encouraging her to “kiss it.” She said that she pushed the person away, touching it in the process. Ramirez, who was raised a devout Catholic in Connecticut, said that she was shaken. “I wasn’t going to touch a penis until I was married,” she said. “I was embarrassed and ashamed and humiliated.” She remembers Kavanaugh standing to her right and laughing, pulling up his pants. “Brett was laughing,” she said. “I can still see his face, and his hips coming forward, like when you pull up your pants.” She recalled another male student shouting about the incident. “Somebody yelled down the hall, ‘Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie’s face,’ ” she said. “It was his full name. I don’t think it was just ‘Brett.’ And I remember hearing and being mortified that this was out there.”

And yet, after several days of considering the matter carefully, she said, “I’m confident about the pants coming up, and I’m confident about Brett being there.” Ramirez said that what has stayed with her most forcefully is the memory of laughter at her expense from Kavanaugh and the other students. “It was kind of a joke,” she recalled. “And now it’s clear to me it wasn’t a joke.”

The GOP would have you believe a) it didn’t take place or b) if it did it was just youthful hijinks. Bunk.

  1. How would any parents male or female feel if this happened to their kids ? Even if it was 30 something years ago ? I ask any parent : would you be blaming your kids or would you be pissed off that your kid was targeted and abused and raped by another kid while at a party ? Wouldn’t you want to have revenge on the kids who attacked your kids ? Or would you say it was just rough housing or horse play and your child should just get over it since it happened so many years ago ? Are targeting and abuse and rape American values ? Why aren’t more people asking for an FBI investigation since they have to do a thorough background check on all federal officials ? Just sayin …

  2. It is painfully obvious to me that the Republicans are once again willing to ignore untenable bad acts so they can continue to foster the legacy of corruption in our nation that starts at the very top. It is not too hard for Americans to ascertain exactly why the push to vote for Kavanaugh and to get him seated on the bench is so important to Republicans. It is no secret as to why Trump is eager to have the Mueller investigation to go away. He is so guilty that he dreads being fully exposed to the elected republicans and his unyielding and unflinching base. from here it looks like there is more than enough guilt between Trump and Kavanaugh to go around. No FBI investigation into these serious allegations is a clear break from standard procedures and it clearly illustrates to Democrats and Republicans alike that there is much that will be uncovered by the FBI, in addition to the FBI validating the claims of sexual assault by multiple accusers. It is no mystery why Trump is encouraging such a herculean effort to have this man confirmed even though the accounts of his alleged victims have him thoroughly pegged as a sexual predator. He is similar to Trump in many respects including the fact that he has experienced the unexpected exposure of their sins of the past coming to light and their misguided disposition which tells them that they are above reproach and impervious to criminal prosecution. I strongly suggest that they all press formal charges against Kavanaugh forthwith and let the machinery that is our criminal justice system run its course. Let the truth be told!
