Deborah Ramirez, a former Yale classmate of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, has come out and accused the embattled judge of sexual misconduct.
She’s the second woman in about a week to have done so.
In an explosive article penned by Ronan Farrow (the reporter who exposed allegedly heinous sex-related crimes by Harvey Weinstein and Les Moonves) and investigative journalist Jane Mayer, Ramirez says Kavanaugh exposed his penis to her during a party their freshman year of college.
The 53-year old admits to having been very drunk at this dorm gathering, but that Kavanaugh “caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.”
She says he then laughed at the incident, which allegedly took place at some point in 1983 or 1984.
Farrow and Mayer write that Ramirez was initially hesitant to come forward due to “gaps in her memory” as a result of the alcohol consumption that night. However…
“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.”
This is what Ramirez says about what transpired:
“I wasn’t going to touch a penis until I was married [because] I was raised a devout Catholic in Connecticut… I was embarrassed and ashamed and humiliated.”
Describing her memory of Kavanaugh’s act and subequent reaction, Ramirez told the magazine:
“I can still see his face, and his hips coming forward, like when you pull up your pants.”
The aspiring Supreme Court Justice, who is currently scheduled to testify in from of Senators on Thursday morning in response to an attempted rape allegation by Christine Blasey Ford, has issued the following statement:
This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen.
The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple.
I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name — and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building — against these last-minute allegations.
And then there’s this from White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec:
This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats designed to tear down a good man.
This claim is denied by all who were said to be present and is wholly inconsistent with what many women and men who knew Judge Kavanaugh at the time in college say.
The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh.
Sources say President Donald Trump has no intention on asking Kavanaugh to withdraw his name from consideration, while Senator Diane Feinstein has called for a delay of all hearings and testimonies until the FBI can investigate both allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.
According to The New Yorker article, “Senior Republican staffers also learned of the allegation last week and, in conversations with The New Yorker, expressed concern about its potential impact on Kavanaugh’s nomination.
“Soon after, Senate Republicans issued renewed calls to accelerate the timing of a committee vote.”
A roommate of Kavanaugh’s in college tells the publication that he may not have been present at this Yale party in question — but that he is “100 percent” sure that Kavanaugh would have done something like this during his time at Yale.
The judge was part of a fraternity (Delta Kappa Epsilon)back then that whose members waved a flag made of women’s underwear around campus during his time as a brother.
The Yale Daily News has also noted that Kavanaugh became a member of Truth and Courage, one of Yale’s secret societies for seniors that was nicknamed “Tit and Clit.”
In 2015, referring to his high school, he said in a speech that “what happens at Georgetown Prep stays at Georgetown Prep and that’s been a good thing for all of us, I think.”
This may not be the case after all, however.
“I would think an FBI investigation would be warranted,” Ramirez told The New Yorker of her claims.
Ford has also encouraged the FBI to look into her allegations against Kavanaugh.
Neither Republican Senators nor President Trump have given the agency a green light to do so, however.

While Teen Mom 2 villain Jenelle Evans is making peace with Barbara, she’s still having plenty of conflicts.
In addition to feuding with other Teen Moms, she has also attracted the ire of her own brother, Colin Evans.
Colin is hitting back at claims she has made about him … and accusing their father of having sexually abused him for five years.
“She lies more than Donald trump,” Colin writes in a scathing post on Facebook.
In case there was any doubt, he makes it clear that he is talking about his sister by adding, in parentheses, “Jenelle Evans.”
In her book, Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom, she claims that Colin had developmental problems and that he once accidentally burned down their home.
“My entire house was not burnt down to the ground at all,” Colin insists.
“Keep on all the lies and for ur info lil sis I’m not developmentally challenged,” he asserts.
Colin shared a photo of a fully intact house, then demands that Jenelle “stop lieing for ur fame.”
This is when his post takes a much more serious turn.
“I’m PTSD from our father sexual abused me for 5 years and beat me and starved me,” Colin writes.
Colin continues: “and i almost died in prison and all u care about is your money (jenelle Evans) lil sis.”
“And u never say hi u don’t care about any one but your self,” Colin concludes. “So keep up the lies lil sis.”
Now, Colin did accidentally start a fire when he was a boy when one his toy cars caught on fire.
Afterwards, he was sent to live in group home in Texas for two years. Colin was only 9 years old.
Starcasm notes that Colin has had legal troubles as an adult.
His rap sheet includes larceny, marijuana possession, possession of drug paraphernalia, injury to personal property, and communicating threats.
None of those sound especially serious — a couple of them shouldn’t even be crimes — but they paint an unflattering portrait of Colin as a troubled man.
We have to say that Colin’s history of petty crimes fits a profile of someone who is overcoming childhood trauma.
That of course does not mean that everyone who is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse commits a string of petty crimes, or vice-versa.
But it’s not uncommon to see someone struggle to cope with their traumatic childhood as they enter adulthood.
Children are not equipped to handle trauma in the way that adults are, and can suffer lifelong consequences as a result.
Some would suggest that Jenelle’s history of drug use and her relationships with terrible men and her poor quality as a parent are indicators of someone who came from a deeply troubled home.
Colin has recently shared that he is hoping to avoid appearing on MTV in the near future.
It looks like he has also grown paranoid about “the Illuminati organization.” Sometimes, people who are troubled can fixate on fictitious entities.
He has said that he doesn’t want anything to do witht he Illuminati or with Satan, saying that he doesn’t have a family of his own, but that Jesus is all of the family that he needs.
It looks like he also went through a breakup with a woman very recently, and is heartbroken over it.
Obviously, the accusations of sexual and physical abuse that he has leveled at his father are very serious.
While adults are of course responsible for their own actions, these allegations do help to explain his behavior, if not excuse them.
