Avennati made his Twitter account private, blaming trump trolls. Odds of his alleged victim coming forward from shrunk considerably.

Probably wishful thinking but assuming he gets confirmed, I read there is a fourth victim's claim being investigated in Maryland. Depending on how that goes, if she ends up filing charges, what does that do to a sitting justice? Have we ever had that scenario before?

There is no immunity, if that is what you are asking.

Theoretically, he could end up doing a "full Cosby" and end up tried, convicted and in state prison.

Michael's account isn't private, it's just that you have to follow him to see his tweets. I think Michael rocks, I'm sick of Democrats getting shafted and outrun by the massive, massive right wing media machine. Like him or not, Avenatti has been successful thee times this year. As mentioned in another topic, I believe this is how things are now because of Donald; America is now a reality TV show, at least while he's in office. If we don't respond the same way, I think we'll be wiped out. People are angry and frustrated and scared, if Michael can help bring some justice and shake the tree I'm 100% behind him.

The pattern has emerged. The predators get a girl drunk or find one who is. Then blame her for being drunk, being confused, lying to cover up her consent and/or initiation of the acts, etc. It's worked for eons, and creepy old white men like Hatch, McConnell and Trump are running with that time-tested defense.

Dr. Ford is enticed into a room, the door is locked, and a hand is over her mouth to stop her cries.

Ramirez is invited to a drinking game party in which the partiers pick who will have the next drink. But the participants keep picking her. She's so drunk, she lies down. Then there's a penis in her face, and she's told to kiss it.

Unnamed 3rd person may be related to the incident Judge confessed to his ex. Drunk girl at party, isolated in a room, multiple rapes.

I'm in the doomseer group, so I'm afraid that Kavanaugh will join the SCOTUS. Unless more women come forward NOW and their friends, former classmates and partners rise up to support them.
Exactly what happened to me, Lani. Drunk, unable to understand what was happening. It's been 46 years and I have never talked about it. #MeToo.

I'm so sorry, Suzie. So many women are speaking out now for the first time. The numbers, the pain, are
overwhelming. This week is difficult for so many of us. I honestly don't know how I will cope if/when that horrible man is elevated to a position that gives him even more power to cause even more harm to women. I'm working my emotional survival plan. :bighug:

SuzieC, #MeToo, also. :bighug: It was more than 40 years for me, before I told anyone. And I cannot bring myself to give any details.

My best friend at the time STILL does not know this happened to me. I found myself getting really angry when I saw on Twitter someone comment about one of the women's BFF doesn't know about it, so it didn't happen. Well, my best friend doesn't know either. I never said a word about it. To anyone. Until more than 40 years later. And not to the friend who was my best friend from elementary through high school and long after. She still doesn't know anything about it.

I'm so sorry for all the others that have gone through this. Those who have talked about it and those who still can't tell anyone.

Hugs, much love and empathy to you all. It took me 15 years to tell anyone and I only told my therapist. The shame involved is a killer. Sighs....

The allegations in the Kavanaugh case are triggering, big-time. I've been to parties like that and I knew boys like that. I haven't thought about my case in years and now it is playing non stop in my mind. The whole Trump administration is a daily assault on my mental health and this is worse. I vacillate between wanting to move to a remote island and wanting to run into the streets screaming with rage. I know I am not alone.

Lunch break during the testimony of Dr. Ford. Still time for Kavanaugh to wise up and withdraw his name.

Just kidding. He won't do it, because that would be admitting guilt and as you know, he's in the #neveradmit camp.

But if he is watching her testimony, he will be in a hell of a state when his turn comes. Hard to ignore her obviously truth-telling and focus on how the facts that she doesn't like to fly, and that the Dems are big poopieheads means she is LYING.
