Christine Blasey Ford’s Lawyer Is Representing One Of Andrew Cuomo’s Accusers

From DAILYCALLER.COM

The lawyer who represented Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser is representing one of the women who has accused Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment.  “He was abusing his power over her for sex,” Debra Katz said of Cuomo. “This is textbook sexual harassment.”  Katz represented Christine Blasey Ford in September 2018. The Senate Judiciary Committee ultimately found “no evidence” to corroborate Ford’s claims against Kavanaugh. Video footage later showed Katz saying that putting “an asterisk next to” Kavanaugh’s name before “he takes a scalpel” to Roe v. Wade was “part of what motivated” Ford to speak out.

Exclusive video footage obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation in September 2019 showed Katz saying that putting “an asterisk next to” Kavanaugh’s name before “he takes a scalpel” to Roe v. Wade was “part of what motivated” Ford to speak out.

“In the aftermath of these hearings, I believe that Christine’s testimony brought about more good than the harm misogynist Republicans caused by allowing Kavanaugh on the court,” Katz said in April 2019, speaking at the University of Baltimore’s 11th Feminist Legal Theory Conference, “Applied Feminism and #MeToo.”

“He will always have an asterisk next to his name,” Katz continued. “When he takes a s... (Read more)
