Congratulations to Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, I guess.
No, no, wait. The offense alleged here is serious, much more than Kavanaugh and a pal locking a female classmate in a room or whatever, as was claimed yesterday. And Farrows track record (he co-wrote the piece with Obama apologist Jane Mayer) will lend it a patina of credibility to readers.
But the evidence is thin as can be.
The woman, who has asked not to be identified, first approached Democratic lawmakers in July, shortly after Trump nominated Kavanaugh. The allegation dates back to the early nineteen-eighties, when Kavanaugh was a high-school student at Georgetown Preparatory School, in Bethesda, Maryland, and the woman attended a nearby high school. In the letter, the woman alleged that, during an encounter at a party, Kavanaugh held her down, and that he attempted to force himself on her. She claimed in the letter that Kavanaugh and a classmate of his, both of whom had been drinking, turned up music that was playing in the room to conceal the sound of her protests, and that Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand. She was able to free herself. Although the alleged incident took place decades ago and the three individuals involved were minors, the woman said that the memory had been a source of ongoing distress for her, and that she had sought psychological treatment as a result.
In a statement, Kavanaugh said, I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time.
Kavanaughs classmate said of the womans allegation, I have no recollection of that.
Hes not the only classmate who has no recollection of it

They should put this woman in solitary confinement until such time as she can prove her charges are true.
That’s a denial denial.
He’s in this with Jane Mayer - for those with poor memories, she’s the one who got Linda Tripp’s stepmother to detail Linda’s youthful arrest for theft.
Two ugly peas in a pod.
I don’t think Farrow has any independent sources on this, he’s just parroting DiFi and this letter.
HOLD. THE. VOTE. This is EXACTLY why I cautioned other freepers about believing Farrow just because he got Weinstein for you. Whether he reports it or not it DOES NOT LEND A “PATINA” or otherwise, of credibility!
There is ZERO evidence here. This woman is alleging something that happened in high school? Oh, wow, I wonder if she happens to be a liberal? This is ridiculous, people. Really sad to see hot air carrying democrat water like this.
Oh, Farrow’s been a hero here for a while, sadly.
And I called a girl a “poopy head” in 2nd grade. When is Ronan coming after me?
I had the idea that this was another Anita Hill line of bull.
But then others pointed out that Justice Thomas actually had a real live person making false charges. The very idea that DiFi has an ANONYMOUS woman making this ridiculous claim is just typical of lowlife, desperate, slimy, rat puke gimmicks.
Hey, this strategy worked perfectly on Roy Moore, and most here were right on board.
Note to Master Farrow: Young man, if you’re allowing yourself to be used, hope that great reputation you’ve had for a brief, shining moment was worth it.
Trump's next pick should be the most hard-line conservative woman possible. Every one who attacks and badgers her should be accused of sexism.
What source does he have? Other whan what DiFi parroted?
feinstein reports accuser possesses smart phone recording of incident.
The girl says the boys had been drinking, had she been
drinking also? Lots of holes in this story.
If any of it were serious, why didn’t they bring
it up at the hearing since they’ve had it since June.
Plenty of time to research it’s credibility.
Teenagers do stupid stuff, it’s why the voting age
should be 21 or heck 25.
Hope you are doing well, it’s beautiful here in N.GA.
“Congratulations to Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, I guess.”
What did Allahpundit mean by that? Is he suggesting that she will be Kavanaugh’s replacement?
Hold the vote as planned.
The “Judge Roy Moore” playbook.
