Kavanaugh as #MeToo villain? An outrageous smear!

In their desperate attempt to smear Judge Brett Kavanaugh, many left-leaning commentators try to connect him to #MeToo malefactors like Harvey Weinstein. For two reasons, this association is utterly unfair.

First, the #MeToo villains all exploited positions of power; Kavanaugh was a 17-year-old high school junior at the time of his alleged misdeeds.

Second, all the #MeToo villains were guilty of mistreating multiple women, sometimes hundreds; in Judge Kavanaugh’s case, he’s accused of mistreating only one woman, on a single occasion.

The timing of the accusations is also highly suspect: rather than confronting Kavanaugh in Senate hearings or private meetings with charges she received two months ago, Senator Feinstein made them public in a last-minute last ditch effort to block his nomination.

If senators allow this shady maneuver to succeed, they will shift our politics from merely ugly to outrageously unjust.
