Just as predicted, the Democrats found someone else to make accusations of sexual harassment against Brett Kavanaugh.
The woman at the center of the story, Deborah Ramirez, who is fifty-three, attended Yale with Kavanaugh, where she studied sociology and psychology. Later, she spent years working for an organization that supports victims of domestic violence. The New Yorker contacted Ramirez after learning of her possible involvement in an incident involving Kavanaugh. The allegation was conveyed to Democratic senators by a civil-rights lawyer. For Ramirez, the sudden attention has been unwelcome, and prompted difficult choices. She was at first hesitant to speak publicly, partly because her memories contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident. In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty. After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away. Ramirez is now calling for the F.B.I. to investigate Kavanaugh’s role in the incident. “I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted,” she said.
The last sentence is key. There could be absolutely nothing to these allegations, it doesn’t matter. They just want to stall this until after the midterms. And they’ll do anything to achieve that and the media will help them.
UPDATE: Avenatti is NOT her lawyer:

Which means there might be even MORE allegations…
UPDATE: Kavanaugh denies:

I take the Ford accusation seriously. Even at this late date.— Pradheep J. Shanker, M.D., M.S. (@Neoavatara) September 24, 2018
This, even if accurate...is ridiculous.
Honestly can't believe Farrow thought this was worthy of an article. This is BuzzFeed level silliness. https://t.co/FmxEsjWdI9
