Anti-Kavanaugh Protester Confronts GOP Senator – He Pushes Back

Benny Johnson | Reporter At Large

Anti-Brett Kavanaugh protesters have flooded Capitol Hill since news of allegations of sexual misconduct against him, walking hallways in protest, holding loud demonstrations and confronting senators in elevators.

One such protester approached Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana on his way through a Senate building walkway Monday. She asked, “Why are you supporting Kavanaugh?” to the brisk-walking senator. Cassidy took the chance to push back, asking her if she would like it if her loved ones were “destroyed” by “uncorroborated” charges.

Cassidy: “Why wouldn’t I support Kavanaugh?”

Protester: “Because rapists are bad.”

Cassidy: “Wait a second — everybody there said that it did not happen. So why am I going to–”

Protester: “So you’re going to believe Mark Judge over a woman?”

Cassidy: “No, I’m going to believe her best friend.”

Protester: “Her best friend didn’t say it didn’t happen. Her best friend said she wasn’t told about it.”

Cassidy: “She said she didn’t remember.”

Protester: “So you’re OK as a doctor to harm a woman?”

Cassidy: “Wait a second – are you OK as a person to go ahead and to accept a non-corroborated charge to destroy someone’s life? If it destroyed your life, your son’s life, or your husband’s? Wait a second, answer my question. If it was your husband, your son, your father, whose life has been destroyed by uncorroborated, would you like that?”

Protester: “I would support a full FBI investigation.”

Cassidy: “No, no. Would you like that? An uncorroborated charge, destroying—”

Protester: “I wouldn’t marry somebody that was a drunk.”

Cassidy: “Oh no, wait a second. Uncorroborated. Answer the question. I don’t think you’re able to. Because you know it’s unfair.”

Protester: “I would stand up.”

Cassidy: “You know it’s unfair.”

Protester: “I would fight. And I would make sure women are heard. Clearly you’re OK if a rapist goes on the Supreme Court.”

Cassidy: “No, I’m not. But then on the other hand, clearly you’re OK, the absence of evidence obviously means nothing to you.”

Protester: “No, there is evidence. Look at the standard. How many people are in jail for less?”
