Kavanaugh ally did online searches for Christine Blasey Ford before she was revealed as accuser: report

Published

on

A conservative lobbyist friend of Brett Kavanaugh’s searched for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford on LinkedIn before she was outed as the person who accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault.

The Washington Post reported that on Sunday, Ford forwarded an email to an associate showing that Ethics and Public Policy Center president Ed Whalen had been looking at her LinkedIn profile.

According to the report, Ford sent the email about 90 minutes after the Post shared her name with the White House — but before the newspaper posted a story revealing her name on Monday.

In a statement, the White House claimed that neither Kavanaugh nor anyone within the administration shared the accuser’s name with Whelan.

The EPPC president and Kavanaugh ally came under fire earlier in the week after he posted a conspiracy theory on Twitter claiming Ford mixed up the nominee with another classmate.

Mitch McConnell crony running for Kentucky AG is ineligible for office: lawsuit

Published

on

On Tuesday, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that a new lawsuit seeks to remove Daniel Cameron from the ballot as the Kentucky GOP's nominee for state attorney general.

According to the lawsuit, filed by retired union worker and "concerned citizen" Joseph Leon Jackson Sr. in Jefferson Circuit Court, Cameron does not meet the office requirement of having practiced law for eight years — because although he was admitted by the Kentucky Bar Association in 2011, he spent two of the following years clerking for U.S. District Judge Gregory Van Tatenhove.
