Just Like Clarence Thomas

Except at least Thomas' accuser (Anita Hill) didn't hide behind anonymity.9/14/18 BBC:
The alleged incident took place when Mr Kavanaugh was a minor and student at Georgetown Preparatory School in Bethesda, Maryland.
The woman - who asked not to be identified - was also a minor and a student at a nearby high school. Her letter alleges the now judge held her down and covered her mouth with his hand.
They were in a room with a classmate of Mr Kavanaugh's, and both boys had been drinking, before turning up the music to muffle her sound of protests, she alleges. The woman was able to free herself, the New Yorker said.
Although the alleged incident was decades ago, the woman said the memory had caused ongoing distress and she had sought psychological treatment.
Like Thomas, Kavanaugh has been through the process of confirmation as a judge before--and this is only appearing now.  It is also decades later.  Why do we have statutes of limitations on most crimes?  Because it is very hard to find witnesses and evidences many years later.  "Where were you the night of June 24, 1982?"  Heck, I don't remember.

Might Kavanaugh done something like this at a party when he was 17?  Possibly.  Teens do lots of stupid things at parties.  I might have, but I was nerd to the fourth power, so there were no party invitations.  Raising this claim now by an anonymous woman just shows how desperate the Democrats are.
