On September 16, Dr. Blasey Ford came forward publicly about her experience of being sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh, Trump's Supreme Court nominee. Thanks to her bravery, we now know that Kavanaugh, in addition to being a political danger to women, is a sexual predator.1
Dr. Blasey Ford's story is horrifying, Eddie. During a party in high school, she described how Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, tried to pull off her clothing, and covered her mouth as she tried to scream.2
Kavanaugh's nomination was already on the rocks before Dr. Blasey Ford came forward with her story. But now, the outcry over Ford's allegations is putting pressure on every senator to come out against Kavanaugh.
Republican Senators Jeff Flake and Bob Corker have joined Democrats in calling for Kavanaugh's nomination to be delayed—and a hearing is planned for Monday.3,4
We believe survivors, and we believe Dr. Blasey Ford.
We have all the information we need to know Kavanaugh should not be a Supreme Court justice. If every Democrat and just a few Republicans come out against Kavanaugh's nomination, we have a real chance to stop this man from a lifetime nomination to the Supreme Court.
Sign the petition to send the Senate a clear message: Brett Kavanaugh has no place on the Supreme Court of the United States.
