Kavanaugh Friend Mark Judge Reportedly Admitted to ‘Taking Turns’ Having Sex With Drunk Girl

Mod: Yesterday we were treated to an onslaught of agitated nonsense from a commenter who desperately wanted to cast some shade on many of the things being reported both in the press, and here. This is one of the things this dude claimed: "Judge was offered up by Ford as a witness for her. Bad choice since he has no recollection of the events she says he witnessed. Back to square one. Shame on Feinstein for sitting on the letter for so long." As has often been said here before, if all you do is watch Fox News you will find yourself being embarrassed by those who are far better informed. What follows below is a pretty fair example of better information.

Kavanaugh Friend Mark Judge Reportedly Admitted to ‘Taking Turns’ Having Sex With Drunk Girl (The Cut link): When Christine Blasey Ford publicly came forward with her sexual-assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, she named conservative writer Mark Judge as Kavanaugh’s alleged accomplice during the incident. Both Judge and Kavanaugh have denied Ford’s allegations; Judge also claimed that “no horseplay” occurred at the Georgetown Prep parties they attended. But, in a Sunday night report by The New Yorker, Judge’s ex-girlfriend of three years Elizabeth Rasor says he told her a “very different story” about those parties.

Rasor says that Judge “told her ashamedly” about an incident in which he and other boys took turns having sex with a drunk woman, per The New Yorker. He seemed to think it was consensual, she added, and he didn’t name anyone else who had been involved. There is no indication that Kavanaugh was one of the boys, The New Yorker notes.

An hour after the report was published, attorney Michael Avenatti tweeted an email in which he claimed to have “significant evidence” that Kavanaugh, Judge, and others would “participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs in order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang rape them.”

Speaking with The New Yorker, Rasor, who dated Judge for three years, said she felt morally obligated to dispute Judge’s claims about the prep school party culture. She told the magazine, “Under normal circumstances, I wouldn’t reveal information that was told in confidence,” before adding, “I can’t stand by and watch him lie.”

In a statement, Judge’s attorney said that he “categorically denies” Rasor’s account. An unnamed woman who attended high school in Montgomery County, Maryland, around the same time as Judge and Kavanaugh also refutes Judge’s claims about the social scene. The woman, who asked to be kept anonymous out of fear of retaliation, told TNY that the male students “would get a female student blind drunk” and then try to take advantage of her. “They treated women like meat,” she said.

Despite being named by Ford as a witness, Judge, who once praised “uncontrollable male passion” in his writing, has thus far refused to testify on Ford’s sexual-assault allegations.

Kavanaugh’s Alleged Accomplice Once Praised ‘Uncontrollable Male Passion’ (The Cut link): According to Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when she was 15 and he was 17, Kavanaugh wasn’t the only man in the room when he allegedly held her down and “fumbled with her clothes, seemingly hindered by his intoxication.” Ford says conservative writer Mark Judge, Kavanaugh’s friend and classmate from Georgetown Preparatory School, who now writes for websites like the Daily Caller and once authored a book about his personal struggle with alcoholism as a teenager, was also present.

According to Ford, Judge stood across the room and turned up the music to drown out her yelling, while he and Kavanaugh, both of whom were drunk, “laughed maniacally.” Judge then allegedly proceeded to jump on Ford and Kavanaugh twice, which toppled over the latter and helped Ford free herself. (Kavanaugh “categorically and unequivocally” denies the allegations.)

Judge said the accusations are “absolutely nuts” in an interview with the Weekly Standard, insisting that he “never saw Brett act that way.” But the writer’s public musings on sexual assault and masculinity bring into question the merit of his views on sexual assault.

He trotted out the myth that revealing clothes could lead to assault. In a piece from 2017, Judge wrote that “what women wear and their body language also send signals about their sexuality.” While he also explicitly wrote several times in one paragraph that women shouldn’t be raped, he followed each statement with a hard “but.”

“… Women who dress like prostitutes are also sending out signals,” he wrote. “The signal is not that they should be raped. But if a posture while drinking coffee is indicative of the soul and personality within, than so is marching down the street in your underwear.”

In a favorable review of the publisher Hard Case Crime, which Judge praises for “[reinvigorating] the idea that male passion is good and beautiful,” he bemoaned social justice warriors who conflate sexual assault and what he believes to be “beautiful” displays of male sexual energy.

“There’s also that ambiguous middle ground, where the woman seems interested and indicates, whether verbally or not, that the man needs to prove himself to her,” he wrote. “And if that man is any kind of man, he’ll allow himself the awesome power, the wonderful beauty, of uncontrollable male passion.”

  1. Fox News, the home of Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly, should be experts on sexual harassment. How many of their executives have they fired for just that? How many of its female employees were paid millions of dollars to settle their lawsuits?

  3. Just some thoughts about Ford and Kavenaugh.
    1. Why would her parents allow their 15 year old daughter to go to a party where there might be underaged drinking? They should have contacted the hosts parents to find out if the were going to be present.
    2. Who was the adult supervision.
    3. School party?

    2. Perhaps Ford didn’t tell her parents was because she had sneaked out to go to the party and was also drinking.

    3. Teenagers go to friends' homes after school and during school breaks while parents are working. Drinking may or not take place aka "parties." Sometime parties occur at night when parents are away. But you know that, so spare us the mock surprise.

  17. What's always lost in these situations is that while everyone other than felons may DESIRE a public office, they do not have a RIGHT to the office. A national office seeker's individual background, history, and proclivities must be balanced against the needs and RIGHTS of 300 million members of the public.

    We should always err on the side of the RIGHTS of 300 million members, not the DESIRES of an individual.
