Christine Blasey Ford is not expected to “make a good witness” when she testifies Thursday afternoon in Congress about her dubious allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
In explaining why, an anonymous Senate Judiciary Committee staffer said Republicans have obtained evidence that calls into question her character, or the lack thereof.
“We have her yearbooks. She will not make a good witness,” the staffer said to RealClearInvestigations.
These yearbooks reportedly suggest Ford was a binge-drinking, sexually promiscuous teen.
“The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, noted that the annual class books feature a photo of an underage Ford attending at least one party, alongside a caption boasting of girls passing out from binge drinking,” RCI reported.
“Her yearbooks also openly reference sexually promiscuous behavior by the girls, including targeting boys at Kavanaugh’s alma mater, Georgetown Prep, an all-boys school in the affluent Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C. Ford attended neighboring Holton-Arms School, an all-girls academy.”
Some have suggested that highlighting this naughty behavior may backfire on Republicans, particularly in light of the #MeToo movement:
They’re going to shame her as a party girl because of course they are https://t.co/qEnT6Q7Oy6

Not seeing how slut shaming Blasey Ford as a party girl is a good idea. https://t.co/3HtjBlpax3

Regarding Ford, other evidence reportedly proves that she attended “keg parties,” spent time in the “bar scene” and got involved in “a romantic triangle” that led to two men fighting over her.
“She was not the wholesome Catholic girl they’re trying to portray her as,” the staffer said.
So far nothing Ford’s claimed has held up to scrutiny. The results of a polygraph test she reportedly took last month has been found to be littered with contradictions. None of the people whom she’s cited as corroborating witnesses have backed her claims. And she’s tried every trick possible to avoid testifying to Congress and being questioned under oath by an experienced sex crimes prosecutor.
She’s also been unable to cite specific details, including where and when exactly the assault occurred, and she’s been unable to explain why she never told her parents about the alleged assault.
“I did not want to tell my parents that I, at age 15, was in a house without any parents present, drinking beer with boys,” she had reportedly said.
But her yearbooks reportedly include photos of boys and girls drinking at parties: “One published a photo of Ford and other girls at a Halloween party alongside a caption boasting of ‘pass[ing] out’ after playing “Quarters” and other binge-drinking games,” RCI reported, quoting the unnamed staffer.
While it remains unclear whether Republicans will indeed highlight this problematic behavior Thursday, one thing’s for certain — that the media will bury these facts just like they invariably bury anything and everything that belies the usually false narratives they seek to peddle.
