‘I Believe Her’: Ohio’s Democrat Candidates in Lock-Step with Feinstein-Schumer Attempt to Smear Judge Kavanaugh

Ohio’s Democrat candidates running in the 2018 midterm election are going all in with their party’s obstruction of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court and the unsubstantiated attacks against his character.

Sherrod Brown, Richard Cordray, Theresa Gasper, Aftab Pureval — they’re all taking the cue from their party leadership in Washington and piling on the Kavanaugh-bashing train.

Let’s start with Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH). He has a court-documented accusation of spousal abuse in his past, but that didn’t stop him from tweeting Friday in support of nixing the Kavanaugh nomination, despite zero evidence provided by the judge’s accuser that would put him at a house party in 1982 in which she says she was assaulted by him.

Richard Cordray, the Democrat running against Republican Mike DeWine for governor, also tweeted his support for Kavanaugh’s accuser during the Senate hearings Thursday and Friday.

Cordray said he believes Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, despite her failure to even recollect the location or date of the house party, not to mention her failure to provide even a single corroborating witness who could say that Kavanaugh was at the alleged party. None of those facts matter to Cordray. His party opposes Kavanaugh and believes his “multiple accusers,” so he does too.

Then comes Theresa Gasper, running as a Democrat against Rep. Mike Turner (Rep. OH-10)

Not to be outdone, Aftab Pureval, candidate for Ohio’s district 1 congressional seat against incumbent Rep. Steve Chabot (R-OH-1), also voiced his support for Democrat Sens. Diane Feinstein, Dick Durbin, Richard Blumenthal, Kamala Harris and the other obstructionists on the Senate Judiciary Committee who were seeking to stall the nomination vote and obtain an FBI investigation.

“I believer her,” Pureval said about Dr. Ford’s testimoney, obviously believing that the burden of proof is on Kavanaugh to prove his innocence.

That raises the question: If Pureval is so easily convinced to throw out the rule of law, would he favor his own conviction on pending allegations that he violated federal campaign-finance laws based on accusation alone? If so, why not forego any further hearings, resign from the congressional race and just turn himself in?

The other question voters should be asking Ohio’s Democrat slate of candidates is this: If they want a “full FBI investigation” of Judge Kavanaugh based on an uncorroborated high-school accusation from 36 years ago, would they support an FBI investigation and offer a hearing to the victims of Rep. Keith Ellison’s alleged abuse? At least one of Ellison’s accusers has medical evidence, and presumably can give exact times, dates and places of his abuse, none of which Dr. Ford could provide against Kavanaugh.

Nor has any Ohio Democrat issued a single word of condemnation of Brown for his documented problems of abusing his former wife, who was forced to get a restraining order against him after he hit her and pushed her.

It would only stand to reason that if these Democrats really cared about women as much as they claim, that it wouldn’t matter what political party the abusive man is a member of. Or, is their moral outrage really only against Republican men, even when the evidence does not rise above the level of an accusation?
