Earlier this summer, Christine Blasey Ford wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker alleging that Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago, when they were high school students in suburban Maryland. Since Wednesday, she has watched as that bare-bones version of her story became public without her name or her consent, drawing a blanket denial from Kavanaugh and roiling a nomination that just days ago seemed all but certain to succeed.

Now, Ford has decided that if her story is going to be told, she wants to be the one to tell it..

Speaking publicly for the first time, Ford said that one summer in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh and a friend — both “stumbling drunk,” Ford alleges — corralled her into a bedroom during a gathering of teenagers at a house in Montgomery County.

While his friend watched, she said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it. When she tried to scream, she said, he put his hand over her mouth.

“I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” said Ford, now a 51-year-old research psychologist in northern California. “He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.”

Ford said she was able to escape when Kavanaugh’s friend and classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them, sending all three tumbling. She said she ran from the room, briefly locked herself in a bathroom and then fled the house.

Ford shared notes taken by a marriage counselor from 2012 where she revealed the incident but did not mention Kavanaugh by name.

I think this thing is now much worse for Kavanaugh.

It was one thing when this was an anonymous source, but quite another with a name and a face attached to the accusation. 

The sad thing is that this woman had to go public at all since we know she is about to get the Anita Hill treatment and have her life torn open for all the world to examine.

    But, as was said yesterday – there are now so many in the #MeToo movement who will rally round.

      Agreed and he’ll be confirmed in spite of it.

      Yeah, so many, like Asia Argento….. Oh wait, that is right. Forgot it was recently revealed she raped a teenage boy prior to being one of the originators of the metoo, and as a result Anthony Burdain committed suicide when all the facts started to surface that she was a piece of shit liar, and he was unwittingly and embarrassingly taken by her lies too.

    Ms. Ford knows what is coming. She needs to close down her social media accounts, get another phone number
    and get ready for a whole lot of right wing lunatics to threaten her, call her a whore or proudly proclaim—“Hey I tried
    to attack a couple of girls with a friend too in high school—-so what?”

    Kavanaugh struck me as creepy—immediately. Sort of like the minute I saw Palin on stage in Dayton for the first time.

    Sadly I agree that Ms. Ford will undoubtedly get the Anita Hill treatment from those old, white men. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that the women will now vote against Kavanaugh’s nomination.
    I can still see that sneer of contempt Kavanaugh gave the father of the Parkland shooting victim.

    The other thing I don’t understand is why Diane Feinstein waited until September to contact the FBI. It was reported that Feinstein was given the letter back in July.

      Word is that Dr. Ford did not want to go public or have her name revealed was a reason for the delay.

    She has a much better lawyer than Anita Hill had so I hope and trust she will at least get fair treatment in the Senate. Even those weasels know that time’s up on their degrading sexist bullshit.

    The right wing smear machine will go into high gear of course and I’m sorry she’s about to go through hell, but I think time’s about to be up for those shitheads too. Hell even Megan Kelly went after Roger Ailes.

    Time to stand up folks and let your Senators know that if they mistreat this woman they will be defeated. Not a good year for those boys to be hurting a woman.

      It is a different time than it was when Clarence Thomas was confirmed. The gender composition of the Senate is different too. But Republicans are still Republicans and Kavanaugh will still be confirmed. I’ll bet even that whiner Sasse will vote to confirm. Those traitor Dems like Manchin and Heitkamp will too. Even Collens and Murkowski crossing over won’t stop this train wreck.

      McConnell is drawling his same old partisan shit.

      The entire side show is disgusting.

    They’re already blaming her for waiting so long for therapy. I think the point here is that it came out during marriage counseling. So obviously it was so traumatic that 30 years later it was still having a negative effect on her life. And 2012 is before there was any twinkle in anyone’s eye of putting Kavanaughon the Supreme Court bench.

    The only fault here is that Feinstein sat on it for so long.
