As Ex-Girlfriends Vouch for Kavanaugh, Hollywood Actress Jumps In

Share

A line has clearly been drawn regarding the potentially damning sexual allegations launched against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

On the same day two women who used to date Kavanaugh came out in stark defense of him on Fox News, Hollywood actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus has come out to support the accuser by signing a letter penned by various members of her alma mater.

Louis-Dreyfus, an alumna of Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Maryland, the same college prep school Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford went to, came out to publicly support Kavanaugh’s accuser.

“Dr. Blasey Ford’s experience is all too consistent with stories we heard and lived while attending Holton. Many of us are survivors ourselves,” the letter signed by various Holton-Arms alumnae reads.

“It demands a thorough and independent investigation before the Senate can reasonably vote on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to a lifetime seat on the nation’s highest court,” the letter states.

On Sunday, Holton-Arms itself issued a statement demanding that “all voices be heard,” according to The Washington Post.

Meanwhile, two women who used to date Kavanaugh came out with a powerful statement defending his character.

Do you think Brett Kavanaugh is going to be confirmed to the Supreme Court?

“Brett Kavanaugh and I have been good friends since high school. I dated him in college and he was and is nothing like the person who has been described (in the sexual assault allegations.) He always conducted himself honorably with me at all times when we were together,” Maura Fitzgerald wrote. “He was always a perfect gentleman, and I vouch for him completely.”

That is in stark contrast to the way Ford described a sexually aggressive Kavanaugh in her allegations.

“I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” Ford told the Washington Post while adding that Kavanaugh was “stumbling drunk.”

“He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.”

Of note, Kavanaugh has absolutely denied the allegations.

“I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time,” he said in a statement.

Maura Kane, who dated Kavanaugh in high school, also issued a statement supporting him.

“I’ve been friends with Brett Kavanaugh for over 35 years, and dated him during high school,” Kane said. “In every situation where we were together, he (was) always respectful, kind and thoughtful. The accusations leveled against him in no way represent the decent young man I knew. We remain good friends and I admire him as a husband, father and professional.”

The two women appeared together Monday night on Fox News’ “The Story” with Martha MacCallum.

At this point, both the defense and critique of Kavanaugh has become little more than word versus word.

But therein lies one of the many problems with the accusations. It is virtually impossible to reach a fair verdict, regardless of how “thorough” or “independent” an investigation is, for an incident that might or might not have occurred over 35 years ago.

Obviously, if Kavanaugh actually sexually assaulted Ford, those actions should be condemned in the harshest of terms. But more than three decades after the alleged fact, it’s a dicey proposition to simply assume the truth.

If the far-left just wants to start taking people at their word without any concrete evidence to back it up, perhaps they should give Kane and Fitzgerald’s comments the same credence they’ve been giving the words of Ford other Holton-Arms alumnae.
