The latest on Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO - Local political analyst Laura Fink discusses the latest Kavanaugh developments and what we can expect this week.

Recently, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward with a shocking allegation against Brett Kavanaugh. 

Dr. Ford alleged that in 1982, she had attended a house party that had also been attended by the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

During the party, Kavanaugh and his friend had corralled her into an empty bedroom; that Kavanaugh had pinned her down on a bed; that he had groped her; that he had tried to remove her clothes; that his fervor had been so violent that she had feared he might inadvertently kill her.

Ed Whelan, the president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center and the close friend and adviser of Brett Kavanaugh, came forward with evidence of his own that exonerated Kavanaugh. 

Whelan claims that that Kavanaugh he had a lookalike, a doppelgänger, if you will, who was responsible for the alleged transgressions against Dr. Ford.

As specific evidence of the exonerating doppelgängerism, Whelan included pictures of the man in question, placed next to images of Kavanaugh: in high school, and in the present.

“There is zero chance that I would confuse them,” Ford told The Washington Post, of Kavanaugh and the classmate, adding that she had socialized with the classmate. 

 At issue here, the defenses insist, are those most generalized and relatable and blameless of things: the fickle workings of the human mind.

Anyone could be confused, they assure.

Dr. Ford will testify against Kavanaugh on Thursday, September 27.
