Is it really that much of a stretch to imagine that a president who openly admits to groping women, peeping in at young women in beauty pageants and faces his own accusations of sexual violence might want to appoint a Supreme Court justice who's done similar acts in his own past? Brett Kavanaugh's behavior being chalked up as a youthful indiscretion, that "boys will be boys," is an outrageous problem in our society. Young women hearing this are learning that they don't matter, that men who hurt them face zero consequences (which is often true), and young men are hearing that this behavior is okay to emulate.
It can't be that difficult to locate someone, anyone, who is a conservative judge who still favors all of Trump's inane policies who doesn't have a past history of sexual violence... can it? The overlap should give many voters pause if they don't feel it already.
Do you think Kavanaugh should be given a pass since this was a long time ago? How long ago is long enough for a violation that was never righted and a victim who never found justice, and is a person who doesn't even appear to be sorry fit to serve on the Supreme Court?
