DPW Chair Responds to Trump’s Tweets Attempting to Discredit Dr. Ford, Kavanaugh’s Accuser
"Sexual assault is not a partisan issue."
MADISON — The following is a statement from Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning on tweets from President Trump attempting to discredit Dr. Christine Blasey Ford who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
“What an absolutely shameful thing for President Trump to say. I cannot begin to imagine what Dr. Ford and her family are experiencing right now, and for Republicans to crucify a woman who has done something that takes such bravery is outrageous.
“Sexual assault is not a partisan issue. We all need to do our part to make sure survivors of sexual violence feel empowered to step forward and seek justice. I believe Dr. Ford and she deserves to be heard. For the President to attack her before she has been afforded that opportunity is unforgivable.”
