The allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a teenager, while both were in high school, has thrown his confirmation up in the air. The Senate wants to hear from Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused him of sexual misconduct. A Monday hearing with both Ford and Kavanaugh is being talked about. It’s a big story with echoes of the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings.
Should an allegation of sexual misconduct at a high school party disqualify Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court?
