Washington’s “Topic du Jour”: Anonymous Claim Against Judge Brett Kavanaugh

Op-Ed by Catherine J. Frompovich

Are the current accusations “coming out of the woodwork” regarding sexual harassment that occurred umpteen years ago akin to shouting “Fire” in a crowded venue when, in reality, there is NO fire?

Furthermore, if some of such accusations were, in fact, “true,” normally they could not be prosecuted because the statute of limitations timelines involved.  So what’s up?

First and foremost, I do not criticize – but certainly admire – women who have the moral integrity to come forward and make their claims with full disclosure, especially their REAL LEGAL names, the calendar date(s) of the ‘happenstance(s)’ involved, and provide a notarized, written statement, plus be agreeable to taking a lie detector test.  Those types of sexual harassment reports should be considered legitimate and also be required by agencies and law enforcement.

Why?  Anything else, I think, ought to be considered in the light of many possible reasons, including “gotcha,” “get even,” or possibly to become “last chance strategies” used to destroy political opponents, such as may be the case in the Judge Brett Kavanaugh hearings.

That would include members of Congress who ‘sat’ upon incriminating information for months, but not take it in to the public forum!  They, too, ought to be questioned as to their actions and reasons for taking them.   Yes; No?

Furthermore, it is my opinion if investigative reporters were to dig into most politicians past, current members of Congress past, or most teens growing up past actions, when hormones take over rational thinking, there would be untold numbers of #MeToo reports that would crash websites, and literally take down most communication routes between those reporting such harassments and the agencies taking reports.

Aren’t there realistic and legal differences between asking for, alluding to, or sexual indiscretion ‘persuasions’ from actual implementation, performance and penetration—especially during teenage years?  Hey, states now are willing to let teens who performed real crimes get out of jail and have their criminal records expunged so they can find work and become taxpayers again! [1,2,3,4,5]

What’s with the Judge Kavanaugh accusations?

As someone who values transparency, I think when a person refuses to identify him- or herself and stands behind the “Anonymous” pseudonym, their accusations ought to be suspect and given the least amount of credibility everywhere, especially in the press, which is considered the “public town square.”

The National Law Journal published “#MeToo Whistleblower Lawyer Makes Waves in Washington – It’s been a busy time for Debra Katz, the D.C. attorney identified as representing the letter-writer roiling Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation this week,” which I think describes the situation I’m trying to point out, and ought to become a classical textbook case in sexual harassment ethics and law.

What do you think?

Fox News now reports this: “Who is Christine Blasey Ford, the professor who accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct?”

  1. Well she has identified herself and while this is way past time to charge him and timing of revelation is obviously to stall the vote; consider the more important facts. The republicans; who complained bitterly when they wanted more time to read documents and vet democratic candidates[which they received], have tried to hide pertinent info about this judge from the Bush administration[and torture]; threatened Senator Booker with expulsion for exposing Judge Kavannah’s emails and not given the opposition any time to read thousands of pages of documents to let there be a fair review because they want to rush the process. This man is a bigot [treatment of Hawaiian & Alaskan natives]
    mysogynist [will overturn Roe v Wade] and his fellow judges have written that he constantly interprets the law to suit his preferred outcomes. Appears he may also have a gambling problems. Most importantly his published writings show that he does not believe a sitting president can or should be prosecuted if he commits a crime!!!

    • Dear CAWS,
      Please provide links to support your statements about Mr. Kavanaugh.

      The people want to know.

      • well how about prosecuting a failed presidential candidate for HER crimes?
        You libtards are so anxious that Kavenaugh just might overturn Roe v Wade ( a crime of a law if ever there was one) & your right to kill babies in child sacrifice (which is exactly what abortion is) that you will go to any lengths to kill his prospects of bringing some balance back to the the very Liberal heavy Supreme Court after the mysterious death of Judge Scalia.

      • Why should CAWS do all the work towards educating you, when 1) clearly, you all have access to the internet, 2) can type & query, and 3) will likely dismiss any news you don’t like as “fake news?” Why bother?

        • Thank you . All Pedro has to do is watch the hearings which have been televised for days; even though they take place during the day when most will be at work. Tape it or play back on internet.

  2. Never Democrat again | September 17, 2018 at 10:13 pm | Reply

    This is straight out of the Democrats dirty tricks book 101!
    they did the same thing to Trump remember?
    Agenda, Agenda, Agenda written all over it.
    so disgusting, so vile!
    Is this all they can come up with?
    Im so disgusted with the degradation of the Democratic Party. The blatant lies, corruption, deceit, underhandedness, the false accusations & the collusion. Have they reached the bottom of the barrel yet?
    only time will tell.
    But after all this ill never vote Democrat again.

    • Hypocrisy much? What of Mitch McConnell’s refusal to vote on Merrick Garland, in 2016? (Who, btw, didn’t sexually assault a woman in the 1980s. Unlike “some” people.)

      I might respect Slowflakes like you more (or at all) if time and time again you folks didn’t just dish it out, so to speak, but could “take it,” too. Instead, the majority of you just puff, whine, and cry victim the moment the news doesn’t suit you, or when anyone from your little gang of Rethuglicans gets called out on bad behavior — have some dignity, for once!

  3. Rather slow in the uptick, eh? Christine Blasey Ford’s name was out there a while before this article was regurgitated – I mean, “published” here on September 17th. But, that’s what you get when you source Faux news…

  4. I was raped! by uhh by some one some where during some summer some years ago. Another slap in the face to ligit rape victims.
    Must be Kavanaugh…NOT!
    More b.s from the demoncRats.
    Nancy, Maxine, Feinstein you should all resign. Your each trying to out loon the other.

    • Thank you for treating us all to a heaping helping of crazy, comrade sallyM. In the meantime/on the bright side to all this, it’s “fun” (disgusting) and helpful for people everywhere to find out who the rape apologists are among us.

    Additional info from Catherine for consideration:

    One of the attorneys with whom I network read my Op-Ed regarding the Judge Brett Kavanaugh “last minute sexual accusations,” and forwarded me a breaking story that, if true, proves reality can be more interesting than fiction.

    The article appears on Your News Wire.com and is titled “Breaking: Kavanaugh Accuser’s Brother’s Firm Linked To Fusion GPS.”

    Holy moly! What kind of monkey-wrench does that throw into the mix by apparent Leftist interference?

    The first and second paragraphs of the above breaking story read as follows:

    “Christine Blasey-Ford, the 51-year-old woman who has come out of the woodwork at the last minute, accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her as a teenager, has a brother who worked for a law firm that later retained Fusion GPS, the primary “fixer” for the Clintons and the DNC.

    “Ralph Blasey, brother of Christine Blasey-Ford, worked for 15 years as a Litigation Partner for Baker Hostetler, a law firm that ended up retaining Fusion GPS (https://archive.fo/bGxQf#selection-847.111-847.213), the infamous D.C. company that produced the unverified Steele dossier on President Donald Trump and Russia, sparking the whole Russian collusion investigation.

    [….]

    And Fusion GPS, the company that produced the infamous Steele dossier on President Donald Trump and Russia, was also retained by Baker Hostetler amid the Prevezon litigation.”

    Source: https://yournewswire.com/kavqanaugh-accuser-brother-fusion-gps/

    As they say in many a mystery novel, “The plot thickens.”

    Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his “last minute, out of the woodwork” accuser, Christine Blasey-Ford, have their day to appear before a congressional inquiry committee Monday, September 24, 2018. Will that become a repeat of the infamous Anita Hill / Thomas Clarence accusation [1] fiasco of 1991?

    • Ah, I see my mistake now. I thought this article was going to be one of activistpost’s non-biased, non-politically motivated postings. Instead, this can be thrown in the “crazy lunes still hung up on Hillary/angry that the rest of sane America didn’t just fall in line with President Bonespurs” bin; really, it’s my bad (and a disappointment on my part) for reading, commenting on, or expecting intelligent discourse and analysis from a post originating in Trump camp — we should all know better by now.

  6. Sure appears to be a liar – as a previous victim (from High School, and yes I remember who, when, where and all those I told) we all know that victims never forget — but she sure has a hard time remembering anything. Then working with crazy Feinstein who calculatingly kept this vital information for months..?) what a joke on the USA and especially for women and victims. She is putting respect and credibility for women worldwide back in the closet. The fact that she’s in the mental health field speaks volumes.

    • All I hear from you are implications, insinuations, and conflagrations — “victims never forget but she had a hard time remembering,” “the fact that she’s in the mental health field speaks volumes,” etc. You sound stressed, like you have already been her judge and jury and you’ve decided what’s up? You also sound unprepared for the possible reality that this man – though a respected man – may have sexually assaulted a woman and then (gasp!) lied about it.

      So, naturally I am curious: what’s your skin in this game? Why so petulant? What’s at risk for you, personally, that you would rather cruelly malign the possible victim of a sexual assault?

      • I sound stressed??? What are you on? Haha amazing..
        I’m prepared for all possibilities & sharing my very educated opinion is in no way petulant. If you ever wondered what petulant is, look at your comments on this posts once faced with the ridiculousness of the charges after this much time with few memories — oh and she’s a Trump hater and her brother worked for a company connected to the Clinton’s – oops… crawling to your safe space yet? My skin in this obvious game as you put it as it is a political GAME — is the skin of a previous victim and one who’s worked with many other victims of sexual and domestic abuse. This is disrespectful to all those who’ve truly suffered.

        • Interesting, thanks for sharing. Based on your comments before – “we all know that victims never forget,” “what a joke on the USA and for women and victims,” plus “the fact that she’s in the mental health field speaks volumes” I would never have guessed towards your purported “previous victim[hood]” or that you allegedly work/worked with other victims/survivors of sexual assault. (Myself, as the survivor of a rape I didn’t report at the time it happened – too scared, too traumatized – I suppose I’m now grateful YOU weren’t eventually my councilor, as it sounds like you might have shamed or harassed me for going into a prolonged period or shock and then, eventually seeking therapy to get through some parts of it — I mean, if my experience maligned with your personal politics, Paige!) (Good God/God bless! If that’s your attitude while relatively anonymous, online, I can only imagine that the people around you irl are motivated to conform!)

          SO, if you’re still reading/I haven’t lost ya yet, here: your comments have left me with two pressing questions, “Paige”: 1) In what capacity do you claim to work with victims of sexual assault? (Position/title, job description, etc.), and 2) Which organization or, if you’re exceptionally brave, facility are you at?

          I want to know, specifically so other victims like you and me can be aware to stay far, far away from you, lest they be led astray by your “council.” You sound damaging to others, and far more misogynistic than I would ever expect a helper, let alone a survivor, regarding sexual assault. Very disappointing, Paige. ~CP

          • You are an obviously attempting to bully, which I do not accept, and you are spending so much time rewriting what’s been said, over and over. Why can’t you accept that she could very well be lying and have an agenda? One that may be connected to the fact she works closely with the abortion industry and may fear less public funding for such, which would affect her grants and funding if Kavanaugh is approved – whom she didn’t feel the need to try and block all these years he’s been practicing and advising presidents. I’m done with you, where’s your outrage for all the victims of the left?

          • Chelsea Poole | September 21, 2018 at 9:28 am |

            No, I just don’t accept your authority. Why can’t you accept that an overwhelming majority of women who experience sexual assault don’t come forward, if at all, until years later. You use straw man arguments, and Fundamentalist Christian confabulations in place of having real opinions/something to say. To me, and others like me, this automatically disqualifies you as a serious person; as such, I simply ask you do humankind a favor and keep your contamination to others like yourself who’ve submitted to that nonsense, but far FAR away from public policy. (Separation of church and state: It’s fine that you believe in your invisible whatever, but it doesn’t belong in laws for the rest of us.)

          • no, that’s not what I’ve done at all. still bullying I see. Opposing views seem to be poisonous to you and now you try to disqualify me as a serious person? seriously C, you have no idea of my religion or politics yet you try to use them against me. what an abusive way to discus issues. icky..

          • Chelsea Poole | September 21, 2018 at 11:06 am |

            It’s strange that we’ve come to this sort of stalemate — I see you as bullying, you see me as bullying. I think it’s been made clear that we are in opposition, at least where these issues are going politically. Where do we go from here? Is this just a race towards having the last word now? *chuckle*

            I feel like for all the words we’ve used in this exchange, neither of us is any the better for it. It’s true that, based on your wording/assumptions expressed in comments on this matter, plus selective phrasing/knowledge of Dr. Blasey Ford, I made some assumptions about who you are and where you’re coming from; I feel like you’ve done the same to me. Which is easy enough to do on the internet…

          • I’d hope anyone accused would have the constitutional right of our presuming innocence until proving guilt. Imagine if it were a falsehood and it was your 25 yr old son being accused… In this case, I can’t see how anyone could prove him guilty or prove her to be a complete liar – stalemate exactly. Hopefully for her soul, she is just a shill being manipulated, however it appears the more we look into her past and present affiliations, it may have been a planned event to smear someone who could affect her future income and standing. Sadly, I see so much divide in our country, that many will not even listen to the other side. Thanks for the banter.

          • Chelsea Poole | September 21, 2018 at 4:56 pm |

            Yw, and ty, too. Sometimes it feels like the constant chatter from Washington gets so noisy and pervasive that we, the people, get stuck in the middle of it all — especially when we’re given select chunks of most stories, framed by different news outlets desperately seeking readership and audience involvement. (Whether it’s the mainstream or independent news, I can’t really hold that against them, that their needs are ultimately the same. Can’t blame a hammer for seeing the whole world as nails…that’s just its nature lol.) Anywho…

            Foot firmly lodged in my mouth, it never occurred to me that other survivors of sexual assault might have a totally different view of how politics might shade this woman’s experience. Right or wrong, instinctively my heart just went out to her, the same as it (❤️) does to the women who previously came forth about sexual impropriety/possible sexual assaults made by Trump, Clinton, etc. (It just seems so easy, whether it’s 2018 or 1982 or whenever, for a certain type of status-seeking person to abuse that power, you know?) Parts of our culture, past and present, seem unnecessarily sordid, and I suspect it takes a toll on us all.

            All in all, I just really hope this country does get better and can offer a workable future for ALL of its citizens/residents, not just those at the top who are already rolling in riches. If that could happen, I feel like we might be a little less divided, a little happier, much more respectful and get along more — despite our differences. SO: looking forward to a better exchange/new perspectives next our comments meet again, Paige. Best to you 🙂

          • Mornin Chelsea – I hope you forgive my delay getting back on here to respond. I greatly appreciate the thoughtfulness and your perspective. Also forgive my snarky remarks. As you say, we’re only given chunks, bits and pieces and only what they want us to see to sway the public opinion one way or another. I’ve been following politics for many years and it’s morphed into such a toxic stew and well, it’s gotten like a prison yard fight with lies spread, misinformation, slanted information, personal attacks and back room deals, kickbacks from corporations and lobby groups, etc that we’re never supposed to know about. I personally was in denial, then shock, and so much anger I didn’t realize how patriotic I was. Then came depression – how could they do these things to us, knowingly (vaccines, chemtrails, assassinations, foreign deals, betrayals, etc.) — that’s the wake up phase. Now I know I’m just a goldfish in an ocean of sharks, but sometimes I can’t NOT say something, even though I know it’s all watched and used against us.

            I gravitate towards believing an accuser within perspective. I don’t know of any teen girl who went to at least a few parties who wasn’t groped, do you? I’m not saying that is okay at all! I’ve been thinking of a particular experience as well, much worse than this one, but #metoo, I didn’t say a word. My dad was a Pastor and I was supposed to be somewhere else, but was 17 at a party with college aged people!! They would have told me I asked for it by being in the situation — oh and I was wearing a mini skirt (back in 1988)… I was horribly traumatized by it but over time, with counseling I healed. After this many years I don’t know.. I thought of looking him up to see what became of his life. His mother was the mayor. There are many sexual predators out there — is Kavanaugh one of those? Isn’t she seeking status as well? Would I go to the media to ‘out’ the person or would I have an attorney contact him considering the statute of limitations – wouldn’t that make me a blackmailer or would getting money make it better? With her job and future funding at stake, with her having no girlfriends to corroborate (I did tell my best friend everything!!), with the 30 plus years.. I’m leaning on it being political and not organic for her closure.
            I think we should have more discussions like this.

            I look forward to seeing you around as well 🙂 Thanks again for conversing without hate.

          • Chelsea Poole | September 26, 2018 at 9:41 pm |

            No problem — I spent the last few days under the weather, in sort of a “phase 3” of dental crisis. (Had surgery for an old filling gone wrong/abscess underneath on Monday — on the mend now. “Yay?”) Can’t say I was in great shape to take in your (lovely) reply; instead, I found myself fevering once more to the tv/MSM from our couch, pausing here and there to read a non-mainstream media news article on my phone (when I remembered to charge it, haha). And the news has not been great, for Judge Kavanaugh or, allegedly, for the various other women (in addition to Dr. Ford) who’ve come out of the woodworks to claim what may amount to a history of sexual malfeasance on his part…

            Sigh. Lemme take it back a page: since I was a kid taking Government class – my school’s version of 9th grade social studies/history – I’ve had this sad, sneaking suspicion that we, the American people, may have a Middleschool/Jr. Highschooler’s sense of morality, at least where sex meets fame/politics/our media. It seems as though we’re actively encouraged to be easily scandalized and outraged, everywhere on the political spectrum, by all things related to s-e-x, you know? And than handling such matters (legitimate or not) like adults, we’ve been conditioned toward judgment or denial, with nothing in between.

            So, not to tell anyone how to manage their job, politics, or emotions, but I do
            feel like the way everything relating to these possible SCOTUS possible sexual assault(s) has been handled represents degrees of mismanagement on both sides of the political isle. (As I understand it, Senator Feinstein held onto/didn’t reveal Dr. Ford’s letter of concern until the LAST POSSIBLE MINUTE, politically speaking; simultaneously, the President/Senate refused/refuses to allow the FBI to investigate these claims.) Both party’s decisions are strange to me — why wait to unleash something so damning, and why not take the day and a half necessary for the FBI to investigate? (When did open disclosure and truth become bad words??? VERY frustrating!) Personally, and on the eve of tomorrow’s circus, the actions of both parties leave me feeling bad for all the individuals caught in the middle of this hoopla because (whether accurate or not) Kavanaugh seems cornered by his party/stuck in pure denial mode (as opposed to admitting he has a checkered past but maybe tried to do better since) and Ford goes into her hearing already burdened with the suspicion brought on by Feinstein’s “timing”/political move. None of this is ideal, and I makes me want to extend slow, sarcastic golf claps to both political dinosaur parties…

            Ah well. This stuff aside, I am glad to communicate online with other thinking individuals who take me, at times, out of my own narrow “box.” (Thank you, Paige.) It gives me hope that we the people have some common ground, and that perhaps its existence will gradually overpower this obnoxious, limiting binary political system. Power to the actual people!

  7. Looks like this Ford should be charged with intentional sexual assault and extortion of a public official.

  8. I’l just say it, Christine Ford is a liar.
    This is all last minute crap from the communists.
