Deliberately waiting until the eleventh hour reeks of a sneaky ambush. So much harm has been done to the Kavanaughs and Christine Blasey Ford and her family by allowing unsupported and unproven allegations of sexual assault. These allegations should never have been brought forth when there is no proof or witnesses. The kind of harm inflicted by these kinds of unsupported accusations is devastating even to the innocent simply by their nature. It is unconscionable to try to destroy a man, his reputation and his family. Are we regressing to the Middle Ages when a person could be accused and punished based only on the word of the accuser? I used to be a registered Democrat; I would be ashamed to call myself one today.
