    Simple then to vote and say they believe him, not her.
    I mean, both witnesses have already denied it right? And she's already said she can't remember the exact date or location, so an investigation is practically impossible.

    Check that. All 4 witnesses she's named have now denied it. The female classmate says she wasn't there and doesn't even know Kavanaugh.

    We can all at least agree that this type of behavior isn't ok right...right?

    New witness. "Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford."
    The lawyer acknowledged to CNN that Keyser is a lifelong friend of Ford's.

    I had to go back to make sure, but somehow you were the same guy who said this:

    Man you have a perplexing view of sexual assault in our society.

    Not quite sure the point youíre trying to make. Those two statements are mutually exclusive. I will say that the definition of sexual assault has changed over the years. 30 years ago, a wolf whistle or pat on the rear were seen as the guy being a jerk. Today, those are considered a sexual assault.

    In todayís society, you can have consensual sex with someone and, after the fact, the other person can decide it was a mistake and claim a sexual assault or rape. Iím sorry, but thatís wrong.

    Donít know if you live in Cincinnati now, but former county prosecutor, Mike Allen, now a criminal defense attorney, has filed multiple lawsuits against local schools where the male student was suspended or expelled in that scenario. That would be the fear Iíd have if I had a college aged son.
