"Mormon women demand LDS senators halt Kavanaugh hearings so misconduct allegations

can be investigated."

"An organization of Mormon women formed in response to President Trump’s election is calling for the four Mormon members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to pause hearings for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh until the claims of two women alleging sexual misconduct can be investigated."

"Mormon Women for Ethical Government on Monday issued a statement to the committee and in particular, it said, “to the four members who share our faith as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” — GOP Sens. Orrin G. Hatch and Mike Lee of Utah, Jeff Flake of Arizona, and Mike Crapo of Idaho."

Not sure if this will make a difference, but wishing more womens groups could do the same. Is it possible for our Democratic members, especially the women, in the House and Senate to get together and put a little more pressure on the Republicans? Maybe that isn't allowed, I'm not really sure. This has been a very rough week for me, I was raped many years ago and hospitalized because of injuries from the rape. That was a very bad time, and you try to go on with your life, but there are times, when memories come back to haunt you. I wish we could do more, as a society, for women who have the courage to speak out. Dr. Ford is doing a very brave thing, and it's so unfair the way she has been treated, as well as Deborah Ramirez. I keep hoping they will be believed, but the way Republicans have been railroading things, I'm starting to doubt it. Wish there was more that could be done.
