Judge Kavanaugh and the Anonymous Woman

In the spirit of full disclosure, let me state that I’m neither a psychologist nor a psychiatrist. I have no education or training in diagnosing mental illness, especially involving people that I’ve never met.

BUT my common sense tells me that someone who harbors ill will, bad memories, and mental scars of a distasteful, but minor incident that may or may not have occurred early in the nineteen-eighties, something like 35 years ago, may have a problem.

Even if we accept the anonymous woman’s description of the event as factual (there is no evidence), why would she retain a recollection of an incident that, from her own account, apparently didn’t last more than a few minutes, and from which she was able to escape without any damage to clothing or bodily injury?

Why wouldn’t the anonymous woman have related her story to friends, parents, school authorities, or police if it was a significant incident?

If it was too inconsequential to report to others then, why has it suddenly become worthy of a letter to her state congressional representative – thirty-five years later?

The anonymous woman says that the memory had been a source of ongoing distress for her and that she had sought psychological treatment as a result.

Did the alleged incident really happen?

There are more reasons to doubt it than there are to accept it.

Why did the anonymous woman send a letter relating the incident to her California congresswoman, Anna Eschoo (D-CA)? What could Rep. Eschoo do about it?

Publicize it perhaps?

The answer is painfully clear; the allegation of sexual misconduct was intended to impede the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

In addition to State Representative Eschoo, the letter was also sent to U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) who didn’t even bring up the anonymous woman or her claim in her questioning of Judge Kavanaugh. She forwarded the letter to the FBI, who declined to investigate. Senator Feinstein has since come under fire from her fellow democrats for not notifying them of the letter sooner.

Just imagine the pandemonium that would have been present during the hearings if Senate democrats thought that they had a juicy sexual molestation issue with which they could have crucified the judge. The Senators wouldn’t have cared about the veracity of the allegations, just the accusation itself would have resulted in a parade of faux outrage and thrown the confirmation hearings into democrat-fueled chaos.

I’m thankful that Senator Feinstein didn’t release that letter to her cohorts on the Judiciary Committee. They’ve already proven that they cannot treat a Republican nominee with the decorum one should expect from United States Senators tasked with the important constitutional duty to confirm a Supreme Court Justice.

In her spare time, perhaps Ms. anonymous also writes for the New York Times op-ed, eh?

  1. You asked: “why would she retain a recollection of an incident that, from her own account, apparently didn’t last more than a few minutes, and from which she was able to escape without any damage to clothing or bodily injury?”

    I can only tell you from my own experience that I remember in vivid detail every incidence in which someone inappropriately touched me or was inappropriate in other ways, including precisely where I was at the time. Back then there was no “MeToo” movement, and if things didn’t get violent I suspect most girls didn’t say anything because it’s embarrassing. But I have to say that if, back when you were a teenager, some girl had pushed you onto a bed and tried to rip off your bathing suit I suspect you would remember that forever (and perhaps not with as much angst as she claims to have had).

    So I have no trouble understanding that she would still remember such an incident, but what I DO find unbelievable is that she has conveniently forgotten other details, such as whose house she was in. She suggests that she was with friends (otherwise how did she end up in some stranger’s house) and yet apparently she didn’t tell anyone she was with about this “traumatic” assault or they would have come forward to corroborate her story (or perhaps they would have even come forward before she did). So I don’t believe the story – period. She may have been drinking and is either misremembering what happened or confusing Kavanaugh with someone else, or making the whole thing up. I think it’s worth noting that she’s a registered Democrat.

    What Sen. Feinstein did – purposely sitting on this story until the 11th hour of the confirmation process – is both ridiculously transparent and reprehensible. She seems to have decided that this hail Mary pass was worth the sacrifice of her reputation as one of the more reasonable members in the senate. If I were running the show I would censure her for misconduct and kick her off the confirmation committee right after having an immediate vote to confirm Kavanaugh.

  2. This isn’t an isolated phenomenon. I’ve decided to write a column about it myself, but approaching it from a different angle.

    Stay tuned.

  3. Interesting timing of when this letter showed up – AFTER all the hearings, AFTER they requested more documents – more than comprised the obamacare package they handed Americans, and AFTER throwing tantrums (delays) in the hearings, with few serious questions.

    Interesting too that out of the thousands of letters written to senators by their constituents, this one actually reaches a senator, when most of the time our letters never get past the aides.

    These are desperate times for democrats and this stunt is proof of that.


  4. I’ve been wondering is this person also wrote that dossier ….
    Isn’t it interesting that dozens of females who knew him back then are willing to put their names on a document attesting to his good character, but the individual who he supposedly TRIED (presumably without success, which is probably a major slur against the average male) refuses to sign her name?
