A second woman has publicly stepped forward to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
Deborah Ramirez, 53, attended Yale University with Kavanaugh in the early 1980's. Ramirez has struggled with coming to terms with what happened with Kavanaugh since then.
Ramirez agreed to speak with both Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer from the New Yorker about her allegations.
> After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away. Ramirez is now calling for the F.B.I. to investigate Kavanaugh’s role in the incident. “I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted,” she said.
> In a statement, Kavanaugh wrote, “This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name--and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building--against these last-minute allegations.”
