GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham: Kavanaugh Was The ‘Slut Whore Drunk’ Of The Ford Story




Speaking to reporters moments after the US Senate voted to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said the nominee’s accuser had been treated well by the Senate and that Kavanaugh was the “slut whore drunk” of the story, NBC News reported on Saturday.

Asked whether sexual assault survivors would be more reluctant to come forward because Kavanaugh was confirmed despite allegations by Christine Blasey Ford, Graham said he did not believe that was the case because Ford was “treated well” by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“I think the roles were reversed: The slut whore drunk was Kavanaugh,” he added.

Graham pointed out that he has prosecuted rape cases, defended people accused of sexual violence and sat as a judge.



“I’ve tried to look at this thing through a process that stood the test of time — some standards, some presumptions, some evidentiary requirements,” he added. “All I can say is that seldom do you advance justice by creating an injustice, and I think it would have been unjust for Judge Kavanaugh to have his life ruined based on the allegations that were presented.”

“Dr. Ford, I think, is the victim of a process,” he said. “But we’ve got to have some verifications, some sense of balance, because if that’s enough, just the mere accusation, then you’re going to unleash Pandora’s Box here. Because those of us in public service, you should be scrutinized but you don’t want to set a standard where you just take anybody out by accusing them.”

Graham on Saturday took to Twitter to celebrate the win, writing, “I’m not tired of winning … Victory!” with the word “confirmed” printed in bold capital letters.
