I have never been raped by Brett Kavanaugh.  Where do I send my letter?

In that context, it's a little unsettling they could only find 65.

“They are not our friend, believe me. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

So what part of that are you denying?

These are 65 woman that went to school with him.

I think that says a lot.

I went to high school with about 1100 women.   1095 or so could write a letter saying I didn't have sex with them.

He claims that the left calls people rapists.   That's his orange god calling Mexicans rapists.  Reading is fundamental.

Exactly.   That's over 125 million women that haven't said that Kavanaugh didn't rape them.

Bet you could not get that many women to defend you in 2 days time. From a high school decades ago.

It is actually very impressive. Many more than would or could be expected.

I can also write a letter saying I wasn't murdered by the Zodiac Killer.  Does that mean Ted Cruz is innocent?

With all the sexual abuse resignations lately, seems much more likely from the left.  :thumbup:

To be fair, that’s because the left’s constituency sees it as disqualifying, not an essential part of the resume

Then how does one actually defend themselves against an accusation like this?  (This is rhetorical - basically you can't, certainly by your standards).  

He has categorically denied doing anything wrong and he has a huge host of women vouch for his good character.  How else do you defend yourself against a 35 year old he said/she said accusation?

I'll hang up and listen.

Do it under oath. That’s the extent of his obligation and ability to defend himself, obviously.

After that I think the burden falls to the poeple that nominated him, and are tasked with weighing in on their nomination in their role as representatives of the public, to investigate the matter and ensure that there’s no truth to it. Would you say that the GOP has done that in this case?  

Assuming not, and perhaps giving them a MASSIVE benefit of the doubt and assuming that they kept it under wraps because they didn’t know about it or wanted to protect the victims desire for anonymity, what would you say is their obligation now that the story is public?

Put the accuser under oath.  Put him under oath.  Listen to their testimony.  Weigh their credibility.   Just like a normal proceeding.

Well in this case the accuser wants to remain anonymous, so I’d say their only obligation is to hear his testimony and investigate any corroboration (on either side) and then call it a day. That would be enough for me.

Any wagers on what the party of Donald Trump will actually do?

Late hour desperation charge that anyone could make about anyone at any time.   I refuse to waste my time on this.  This from Clarence Thomas & it fits perfect & sums up my feelings as well.   Oh, & so sorry to briefly intrude on your party.

THOMAS: This is a circus. It’s a national disgrace. It is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves. And it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, you will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree.

The letter was written in July.  

Anyway, you all should definitely keep dismissing and minimizing sexual assault allegations and putting the men accused of them in positions of power.  I’m sure that will work out great for conservatives/ Republicans going forward.

Hmmmmm...Minimize an allegation we know almost nothing about and is from 35 years ago with zero corroborating evidence(at least so far) on the heels of an extremely invasive process that hasn't yet turned any other examples of this...

orrrrrrrr...... We can grab our pitchforks.

Are those the only two options? That’s weird, because I feel like I laid out a perfectly reasonable middle ground like 3 posts ago. 

But hey, keep it up. I’m sure it’ll work out great over the next several election cycles.

Read the transcript.

He said "you could" he never said he did.

Just another lie from the Fake News.

Can you provide a link of a tape or transcript of him saying "you could" Because I just watched multiple tapes with transcripts from different sources of what he said and not on any of them did he say "you could ".

The details are 3 people involved in this allegation. Two out of the 3 deny it and the accuser is the only one unnamed .

Quote

The Kavanaugh classmate quoted in the New Yorker is Mark Judge, a writer in Washington, D.C. Judge spoke to THE WEEKLY STANDARD Friday afternoon, strongly denying that any such incident ever occurred. "It's just absolutely nuts. I never saw Brett act that way," Judge told TWS.

Judge says he first learned he was named in the letter during an interview with the New Yorker. "[Ronan Farrow] said: As you know, you're named in the letter. And I did not know," he said.

The Kavanaugh classmate told TWS that the New Yorker did not provide him the name of the woman alleging wrongdoing, a specific date of the alleged incident, or the location where the incident is alleged to have occurred. The woman alleging misconduct has requested that her identity be protected, according to media reports.

I've been thinking about that today.  For me personally, Franken was essentially right on "the line."  I thought he needed to go, but I came to that conclusion reluctantly and I could probably be talked into the position that his behavior wasn't quite bad enough to warrant being driven from office.

Kavanaugh's case is obviously different for several reasons.  The first is that I would like to see him confirmed, so I'm prone to motivated reasoning on his behalf that I wouldn't have extended to Franken, and I need to be cognizant of that as I think about this issue.  Second, attempted rape is a bigger deal than grab-###.  Third, and weighing against my previous point, is that one's behavior in high school is less of a big deal than one's behavior as an adult.  But I think #2 outweighs #3, and I just can't see somebody guilty of attempted rape sitting on the bench even if the offense occurred when they were 17. 

I know HF will disagree with me on this, but I will draw a very sharp distinction here between "attempted kissing" and "attempted genital penetration."  I know he's arguing that these are legally equivalent, but I don't see them as morally equivalent at all and I would lose no sleep giving a pass to the first (as a teenager, not an adult) while the second is clearly disqualifying.

In Franken's case, I was very strongly influenced by the fact that multiple accusers came forward, on the record.  As long as we have one allegation by a person who wishes to remain anonymous, I strongly support moving full steam ahead with confirmation.  My opinion would change somewhat if the accuser was willing to go on record, depending on the details of what was being alleged, and it would change a lot if other women came forward.

I agree that the anonymous part of this changes the calculus.  Right to confront your accuser and all.  

I understand why she would want to remain anonymous, though.  A lot of crazy people out there, and I could see her life being made a living hell.
