FLASHBACK: Democrats Said Women Don’t Make Up Sexual Assaults

• May 6, 2020 4:50 pm


Several top Democrats said in 2018 that women do not concoct sexual assault allegations, emphasizing that Christine Blasey Ford had "nothing to gain" from accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

Many of those same Democrats have unified behind presumptive nominee Joe Biden in 2020 as he denies a sexual assault allegation by Tara Reade. Democrats have turned away from the broad proclamations they issued during the Kavanaugh confirmation fight, including demands that all women be believed, that the presumption of innocence does not apply to those seeking high office, as well as the calls for federal investigations of decades-old claims.
