11. I always assumed there weren't any allegations raised against Gorsuch

because there weren't any. He's a right-wing Scalia hack of a Justice who was given a seat that should have been given to Garland (or another Obama nominee), but he at least didn't have these kind of personal issues AFAWK. McConnell seemed to know *something* when he reportedly urged Trump NOT to nominate Kavanaugh, which also probably explains why they've had to resort to drastic measures to try to quickly push his nomination through without much debate or discussion. And they almost might have succeeded until Ford's and Ramirez's accusations went public, which is probably what they were hoping hard to avoid, knowing that it would have been harder to get Kavanaugh off the bench once there than it would be to prevent him from getting on in the first place. Politics can get ugly and dirty and everybody does it to some extent but I don't believe that Democrats are using Ford and Ramirez as political pawns. They are (rightly) concerned with somebody like Kavanaugh getting on the bench.
