so now two woman admit to lying about Kavanaugh? cricketsI follow the news pretty closely and I had never even heard this story, doesn't seem like anyone really took it seriously at the time. It's just sad that when a credible accusation comes out you have people that try to hop a board and end up creating a distraction. I guess that is bound to happen in this political environment though.
Yeah, there were a few other “bandwagon” claims that weren’t taken particularly seriously: the admittedly fabricated one, an alleged sexual assault on a boat, some nonsense about throwing an ex-girlfriend against the wall (which was denied by the girlfriend, etc.)
These stories were pushed by parts of the mainstream media, notably NBC:https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/it-sure-looks-like-that-nbc-story-about-a-fourth-kavanaugh-accuser-is-a-load-of-nonsense%3f_amp=true
There really is something to the “fake news” criticisms. NBC prints thinly-sourced accusations like the above, but refuses to disclose proof that Julie Swetnick was lying.
