Had to tap out for a few plays after things took a turn for the felonious yesterday.
Kavanaugh's 3rd accuser, Julie Swetnik, has just released her statement through her attorney. She alleges crude behavior at house parties in the early 80s, up to and including serial sexual assault and participation in gang rape of heavily intoxicated women, and claims Kavanaugh and Judge were present (doesn't state involvement) at her own gang rape, which she believes stemmed from being drugged. Claims she told people shortly afterward.

What a mess.
Huh. Women are repeatedly and consistently gang-raped at these parties, and not only does this “victim” never do anything to report or stop them, but she continues to go to the parties
I can see the behavior described by Ramirez and Ford happening. It goes on on some college campus, somewhere, every weekend. Guys grope women against their will and I’m sure silence their objections. Guys expose themselves.
Gang-rape, though, is pretty rare in and of itself. A woman continuing to go to parties where she knows gang rapes happen all the time? That’s preposterous to me. This isn’t “I heard there was an allegation of a gang-rape but I didn’t believe it, so I went”. It’s “I 100% knew this horrific violence toward women was happening frequently, and I assumed the risk anyway”.
