Ian Eldershaw (Last Post, 12/10) cites the Brett Kavanaugh farce as an example of someone he would deem unemployable because of a question mark on their character. Kavanaugh’s accuser cited an incident that may have happened 36 years ago, could not remember where, how she got there or got home.
The man who she says fell on them and all of her witnesses have no recollection of the incident or of hearing about it. As the days passed, with no corroboration whatever, the accusations became increasingly ludicrous, fed by the political posturing of the Democrats as the rule of law and presumption of innocence was trashed.
The incident may or may not have happened to Christine Blasey Ford, but given that Kavanaugh’s name was not raised with her therapist, the accusation is at best an honest mistake and at worst an example of the suppressed memory syndrome that destroyed reputations in the 1990s.
I suggest that any black marks should be applied to Democrat senators who promoted the farce and the hysterical protesters who reduced judicial process to the level of the Salem witch hunts. Peter West, Aveley, WA
