In Washington, Kavanaugh Is Shunned By Some, Given The Cold Shoulder By Others
Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh brought Americans one of the most contentious confirmation hearings the country has ever seen, after multiple women came forward with accusations of past sexual assaults.
And today, though Kavanaugh’s life has regained some semblance of normal, according to a Washington Post report, many are still inclined to offer the justice little more than a cold shoulder.
The same cannot be said for Kavanaugh’s primary accuser, however. Christine Blasey Ford has moved four times since the hearings, concerned over her family’s safety. And the professor, who has not returned to teaching, continues to receive death threats, The Post reported.
Kavanaugh enjoys far more freedom as he bounces around Washington, though sources close to him say he prefers to stick to friends, former colleagues and audiences who offer a safe and sympathetic environment.
When he strays from such comfort, the court’s newest justice is more likely to be person non grata, according to The Post: “There are women who refuse to be in the same room as Kavanaugh, much less at the same dinner table.”
