Kavanaugh domain name links assault vics to help
Justice Brett Kavanaugh is helping sexual-assault victims whether he likes it or not.
BrettKavanaugh.com launched Tuesday as a landing page for survivors of sexual abuse seeking help, and it wasn’t created by Kavanaugh.
“I believe Dr. Ford. I believe Prof. Hill. I also believe that asking for forgiveness is a sign of maturity ... not weakness,” reads a statement on the site by Fix the Court Executive Director Gabe Roth, referring to Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford and Anita Hill, who accused Justice Clarence Thomas of harassment in 1991.
Roth, 36, says he bought that URLthree years ago thinking Kavanaugh might someday ascend to the highest court in the land. Roth’s intuition proved correct last week when the controversial judge became the nation’s 114th Supreme Court justice, despite claims of sexual assault against him.
“My goal is to refocus the conversation and talk about the fact that there are problems with assault in this country and with the judiciary,” Roth told The News.
The site links to groups including the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, End Rape on Campus and the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network. It also links to news stories that are pertinent to the Supreme Court and its political purview.
Roth says the intention is not to disrespect the court.
“I have more confidence in the courts than any other branch of government — I just think sometimes they miss the mark, and when they do they need to be called out,” he said. “If anyone at the court wants me to take it down, I’m more than happy to oblige.”
The Supreme Court did not return a request for comment.
