How 65 women came to Kavanaugh’s defense in matter of hours

NEW YORK — The allegation of a high-school-era sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh had just emerged last week when friends who knew him as teenagers sprang into action and began a letter-writing effort.

By the next morning, 65 women had signed, backing Kavanagh and attesting to his character.

Now, even as details about the alleged incident have come out, more than a dozen signers who have spoken to The Associated Press or other media outlets are standing by their declaration. The rest are declining to be interviewed.

Women who organized and signed it say it was a rapid response by a social network that endures decades after they graduated, and that it was easy to mobilize.

    more than a dozen signers who have spoken to The Associated Press or other media outlets are standing by their declaration- Why didn’t you report that over 80% who magically jumped at the chance to say he’s a good guy refuse to stand by their declaration. That’s more amazing and what a bad report! I was actually curious about how this could happen so quick & how he knew that many women so well when he went to an all boys school , guess because they didn’t .
