Rep. Braun repeatedly tried discrediting Dr. Ford’s allegation of sexual assault by Judge Kavanaugh, saying her decision to come forward was “orchestrated” and insignificant
INDIANAPOLIS – Rep. Braun has repeatedly tried to undermine the credibility of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, going as far as to dismiss her claims as “orchestrated by Chuck Schumer,” and claiming her story was a political prop instead of one woman’s story as a sexual assault survivor.
In the past few weeks, Rep. Braun has dismissed out of hand the allegations of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford and the other women who have come forward. Rep. Braun has claimed that her accusation against Judge Kavanaugh is being “orchestrated” by Democrats against Kavanaugh — something he insists without evidence he also saw during his Statehouse tenure. Rep. Braun’s immediate refusal to believe Dr. Ford or consider her serious allegation isn’t just insulting to Dr. Ford, but to all Hoosier sexual assault survivors afraid to speak up for fear they will be verbally attacked by people like him.
