    Come on. They don’t even care about the 3 women who came forward and now whole world knows their identity, what makes you think they care about a person whom no one knows (except you)? What good does it do for our people? YES we need to keep her anonymity , but it’s like she never told you what happened all those years ago.

    Congratulations! This truly is independent news reporting and reflects exactly what existed and unfortunately continues today. If the truth be known with maybe a few exceptions every individual qualified for appointment in the eyes of this president shares the same privileged spoiled powerful and unaccountable background. Maybe he could succeed succeed in finding an acceptable candidate by looking at women.

    I hope “Elizabeth” will contact the FBI, as she has information relevant to the new FBI inquiry. The information recounted here contradicts Brett Kavanaugh’s sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, when he insisted that he always treated girls with respect. Her information is also consistent with Ford and others who said he was belligerent and aggressive when drunk. This information could help demonstrate that he was not truthful to the Committee, which would be grounds for rejecting him for appointment to the Supreme Court. Elizabeth, you possess the potential to influence the Senate’s decision. Please be a role model for your daughter, and walk into the nearest FBI office and say you want to provide first-hand information.

    I did not come from a privileged background, nor hang out with prep school boys. I still faced the same types of behavior at parties, and was taught to be on guard. It’s why we call these guys “Dogs”, friendly, polite boys (and men) turn aggressive and inappropriate when in alcohol fueled packs. Have this conversation with women in ANY income bracket. You will find multiple survivors of the types of trauma you’ve described in the article. Our daughters still face this, we teach them to stay together, don’t take drinks from strangers. Have a ride home. They have to go out with a plan to combat the boys who will assault them if given the opportunity. We need a change. Please let’s not pretend it’s only “privileged boys” unless the privilege is limited to being male in America.
