Local Sexual Assault Activists and Legal Experts Weigh in on Kavanaugh Controversy

September 17, 2018

Sexual misconduct accusations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh are already becoming a teaching moment at Drake University. It's a topic first year law students say they will keep a close eye on this week.

 

...Critics are calling the timing of the accusations strange, just days ahead of the nomination vote. Others believe it was potential strategic political move. The Iowa Coalition Against Sexual Assault says the timing of the allegations is not a political one but an emotional one.

 

"For survivors in this situation where the people that have harmed them have very public and high-profile professions, it's really about a need for the to disclose the information. Not a need to throw dirt or garbage out to the public," says associate director, Kerri True - Funk.
