bob...What does Dr Ford have to gain by lying about what happened?
Well lets start with revenge. Also, shes a Dem contributor so she believes or has been convinced that she has it within her power to block the appointment of a conservative judge to SCOTUS. Mark, that really easy to see.
so she believes or has been convinced that she has it within her power to block the appointment of a conservative judge to SCOTUS.
Why would she want to do that? 2nd point. Why would "we the people" want a person that has so little regard? Why should such a person (if guilty) deserve a lifetime appointment? Can we not find anyone better qualified for this job? bob.
She told her shrink and her husband years before Kavanaugh was even on the map. She also took a lie detector and passed. Verification: check.
All of which is meaningless from an evidence point of view. We are still a country of innocent until proven guilty. Anyone can make any wild accusation they want. Its evidence and corroboration that makes the difference.
She also took a lie detector and passed. Verification: check.
There is a reason why lie detector tests are not admissible in court. First of all, it doesn't prove she is telling the truth, it only proves she believes she is telling the truth. Secondly, lie detectors can be beaten. Maybe markster, you need to read up about lie detector tests.

"But she's supposed to be believed anyway because women don't lie about things like this. "
That's not true. There is a tendency to believe her bc right now bc there is a rash of men getting caught, resigning, being fired and confessing. It's not fair for anyone who may be innocent, and that is true. But it's truly about atmosphere right now.
However, as much as I know in my heart this is an epidemic, I also know the vast vast majority of assaults are never reported. It's a part of why this whole thing is imploding now. I hope we learn something....
As far as this particular case, I think this one is suspicious. This only comes up, 35 years later, as a man is nominated to SCOTUS. Only one person. Not dozens. No history of problems.The fighting between party loyalists ( many incapable of an independent thought) on both sides are scratching and fighting for the power of this judge's spot. oh, the power of that spot.
I do not know what is sadder, what is more damaging to our collective soul as a nation, to destroy a possibly innocent man for nothing other than dirty political gain or that another 17 YO girl was assaulted and she Is in the company of thousands of others.
I also know the vast vast majority of assaults are never reported.
The vast majority of the cases where men are resigning and/or being fired isn't assault. Offering more money, a raise a promotion or a sense of job security in exchange for sex is not assault. Bill Cosby is clearly assault.
Ill informed? bob! Have you had an abortion?! How will Kavanaugh possibly being the deciding vote to overturning Roe v Wade effect you? He is pro-birth, a federalist. We all know republicans hate personal freedoms.
2000 United States presidential election recount in Florida. ... The Florida vote was ultimately settled in Bush's favor by a margin of 537 votes when the U.S. Supreme Court, in Bush v. Gore, stopped a recount that had been initiated upon a ruling by the Florida Supreme Court.

Im pretty sure the only lives affected were Bush's and Gore's. It's likely the lives of thousands of Iraqi's and thousands of Americans in a pre-emptive strike against a country that did nothing to us.
