    She only became "certain" it was Brett's penis after consulting with her lawyer. Not fishy at all.

    But the Republican-controlled Senate had imposed strict limits on the investigation.
    Ramirez did not testify at the hearings, and FBI doesn't usually investigate college kids exposing themselves.
    If a crime was committed, Ramirez should have reported it to the local police.
    From where did you get the spin you added?

    There is also a report that Ramirez was not the only Yale student toward whom Kavanaugh allegedly behaved in a similar fashion.
    How do you know Stier, if he witnessed anything at all, did not witness the same party?

    One classmate named Max Stier, who now runs a nonprofit organization in Washington D.C., said that he saw Kavanaugh pull his pants down at a different party and allowed friends to push his penis into the hands of a female student. Although Stier is reported to have informed both members of the Senate and the F.B.I. about what he witnessed, the bureau did not investigate.
    So why was this Stier guy silent until now?
    Unacceptable!
    Should an instance of exposing his junk while in college really be disqualifying 30 years later?
    Should a female be disqualified form SCOTUS if it turns out she flashed somebody in college?

    For all we know, one of these girls from those 90s VHS tapes might be sitting on a federal bench somewhere.

    You posted a news article and added weird commentary that came from nowhere.

    It is based on what the article wrote - that she didn't remember whose penis it was initially because of alcohol and became "certain" it was Brett's only after talking with her lawyer for six days. 30 years after the supposed fact, mind you.
    Credibility looks different.

    That said, I do not think exposing yourself at a drunken college party in college should disqualify somebody from the high bench even if the accusations are true.

    What about lying about it?

    You mean like certain Bill Clinton who was impeached (but not convicted) over lying about some sexcapades?

    What is wrong with you?
    I understand that. However, the first time this happened nothing came of it. It seemed like a witch hunt. I'm just speaking in general that we can't have women tossing out false rape accusations like candy. A man's life and reputation is at stake.
    BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH. Yeah, but in general, can we please talk instead about how MEN are affected?


    Notice you don’t address the OP, still.
    You dodge, weave and try to change the topic to NOT talk about the event in the OP, but instead try to gaslight and change the conversation to “but what about the reputation of men!”

    You know who else does that? Rapists do that.

    And all anyone on the right could talk about were false rape allegations....
    I’m totally certain that Half-Life and his ilk will instantly realize, “oh! What about what is falsely happening to the reputations of the women (not to mention the assaults.)”

    Oh wait, no, they have never once said that. When clear evidence comes out that the witch hunt was against the women, ~crickets~

    That's your spin.
