Dr. Ford swearing to tell the truth at Brett Kavanaugh’s trial.
By Andora June
On September 24, 2018 many people joined the We Believe Survivors Walk Out at 10 am PT, in support of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. This all sprung up when a letter (seen below) sent to senator Dianne Feinstein from Dr. Blasey Ford, describing what happened at her assault involving Kavanaugh and 4 others during a high school party in early 1980’s. After her letter was shared to the public,citizen Debora Ramirez had also claimed to have been sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh in the early 1980’s.
As a result of these two women speaking up it caused a national walk out #BelieveSurvivors. On Monday, September 24, supporters wore black and walked out of their schools, workplaces, etc. in support of believing sexual assault survivors. Others protested at Capitol Hill where more than 100 arrests took place Monday morning.
Letter from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford:
July 30, 2018
Senator Dianne Feinstein
Dear Senator Feinstein:
I am writing with information relevant in evaluating the current nominee to the Supreme Court. As a constituent, I expect that you will maintain this as confidential until we have further opportunity to speak.
Brett Kavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted me during high school in the early 1980’s. He conducted these acts with the assistance of his close friend, Mark G. Judge.
Both were 1-2 years older than me and students at a local private school. The assault occurred in a suburban Maryland area home at a gathering that included me and 4 others.
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh meets with Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Ok, on Capitol Hill iKavanaugh physically pushed me into a bedroom as I was headed for a bathroom up a short stairwell from the living room. They locked the door and played loud music, precluding any successful attempts to yell for help.
Kavanaugh was on top of me while laughing with Judge, who periodically jumped onto Kavanaugh. They both laughed as Kavanaugh tried to disrobe me in their highly inebriated state.
With Kavanaugh’s hand over my mouth, I feared he may inadvertently kill me.
From across the room, a very drunken Judge said mixed words to Kavanaugh ranging from “go for it” to “stop.”
At one point when Judge jumped onto the bed, the weight on me was substantial. The pile toppled, and the two scrapped with each other.
After a few attempts to get away, I was able to take this opportune moment to get up and run across to a hallway bathroom. I locked the bathroom door behind me.
Both loudly stumbled down the stairwell, at which point other persons at the house were talking with them. I exited the bathroom, ran outside of the house and went home.
I have not knowingly seen Kavanaugh since the assault. I did see Judge once at the Potomac Village Safeway, where he was extremely uncomfortable seeing me.
I have received medical treatment regarding the assault. On July 6, I notified my local government representative to ask them how to proceed with sharing this information. It is upsetting to discuss sexual assault and its repercussions, yet I felt guilty and compelled as a citizen about the idea of not saying anything.
I am available to speak further should you wish to discuss. I am currently vacationing in the mid-Atlantic until August 7th and will be in California after August
