Sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh inspired Chris Wallace’s daughters to share stories of their own from high school, the Fox News host said Thursday.
The Hill reported that Wallace said his daughters had never discussed these experiences previously but mentioned them as the family talk about Kavanaugh’s situation over email.
> "[They] hadn’t told their parents, I don’t know if they told their friends. Certainly had never reported it to police," Wallace said on Fox News during coverage of a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Kavanaugh and one of his accusers, Christine Blasey Ford.
> Wallace noted that his daughters described events that "weren't as serious as the allegations against Kavanaugh."
> "But the point is that there are teenage girls who don’t tell stories to a lot of people, and then it comes up, and I don’t think we can disregard that," Wallace said. "I don’ think we can disregard Christine Blasey Ford and the seriousness of this. I think that would be a big mistake."
