The next time you hear anyone admonish you to “believe all women,” remember this.

One of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s accusers admitted she made up her horrific rape story, but you already suspected that, didn’t you?  Judy Munro-Leighton is a left-wing activist who found a “Jane Doe” anonymous report about a backseat rape and decided to pretend that it had happened to her.  Though Munro-Leighton had not been raped, she claimed Kavanaugh did this “vicious assault” to her.

“I am Jane Doe from Oceanside CA — Kavanaugh raped me,” Ms. Munro-Leighton wrote.

Chuck Grassley’s investigators tried to reach her for a month.  Finally, when they got her, she admitted that she’d hijacked some other poor soul’s tragedy. Why did she do it?   Well, to ask the question is to answer it, really.

She said it was “…as a way to grab attention.”

To make matters worse, she never has even met Justice Kavanaugh.

The Washington Times has the story:

“I was angry, and I sent it out,” she told investigators.

“In short, during the committee’s time-sensitive investigation of allegations against Judge Kavanaugh, Ms. Munro-Leighton submitted a fabricated allegation, which diverted committee resources,” Mr. Grassley wrote. “When questioned by Committee investigators she admitted it was false, a ‘ploy,’ and a ‘tactic.’ She was opposed to Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.”

President Trump seized on the report Saturday, calling her “a vicious accuser.”

“What about the others? Where are the Dems on this?” he demanded via Twitter.

Mr. Grassley has previously asked the FBI to probe Julie Swetnick and her lawyer, anti-Trump crusader Michael Avenatti, for lying to Congress and obstructing. Ms. Swetnick had originally claimed to have been the victim of gang rapes involving Justice Kavanaugh during high school parties, saying she saw him and a friend spike punch to leave girls unable to resist. She later changed her story to say she saw Justice Kavanaugh and his friend near a punch bowl, and could not identify them as having actually been part of any rape.

None of the witnesses she told NBC could corroborate her story were able to do so.

Indeed, NBC found one woman who despite a sworn statement backing up Ms. Swetnick, told the network Mr. Avenatti was twisting her words.

Justice Kavanaugh’s confirmation process was delayed while the committee investigated a number of sexual assault and harassment claims, none of which have been corroborated by any public evidence to date.

He vehemently denied all of the claims.

Well, thankfully, you know the rest of the story.  Judge Kavanaugh was confirmed: all but one Republican voted affirmatively on his nomination, all but one Democrat opposed him.

The lasting legacy of the Kavanaugh confirmation is not some travesty of justice for victims of sexual abuse…  at least not at the hands of Republican lawmakers.  Instead, the legacy is one of injustice toward actual sexual abuse victims who were played like pawns by self-interested ideologues: the Democrats.
