Ralph Blasey, the father of Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who last year accused U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of attempted rape, had supported his nomination.
Ralph Blasey’s confirmation of his support for Kavanaugh’s appointment became evident when he met with Ed Kavanaugh, the Supreme Court Justice’s father, and shook his hand saying, “I’m glad Brett was confirmed,” according to The Federalist.
This was reported by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino, co-authors of the book “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court,” The Federalist reported.
The congratulations took place in the golf club of which both are members, a few days after the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, and they also recalled the difficult situation that their families had gone through because of the accusation of Christine Blasey Ford.
The attitude of the accuser’s father is consistent with the tradition cultivated by the two families who, according to The Washington Post, raised their children in the same wealthy suburb of Maryland. The fathers belong to the same male-only golf club and are registered Republicans.
On the other hand, Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations relate to an event that allegedly occurred when they were teenagers, but she could not remember the place or the date or details of how she got to the party or how she left.
It is also noteworthy that before spreading her accusations she deleted from her social networks the record that portrayed her as a liberal activist.
