      Saturday, October 6, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court winning by just two votes. One of the democratic senators switched sides at the last second and voted yes to allow Brett Kavanaugh to join the Supreme Court. After a two-week long confirmation hearing, Kavanaugh was finally accepted to the Supreme Court. It took such a long time because during the entire confirmation there was a scandal involving a few women who accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting them in the past. The main woman throwing accusations at Kavanaugh was a woman named Christine Blasey Ford. Ford’s story not holding up might have been a reason why the Senate eventually allowed Kavanaugh to become a Supreme Court Justice. Some of the points in the story that weren’t holding up when brought to light were when Ford described a home that none of the men had ever lived in when the attack occurred in, the number of people at the party in her story kept changing and near the end the entire confirmation devolved into a cesspool of “she said it happened so it must’ve happened.” While Ford was the main accuser some of the other accusations were even more ridiculous with one woman claiming she went to ten parties where she was raped at every single one of them.  Hopefully, we can leave this entire scandal behind us and let Judge Kavanaugh continue his life without everyone holding this over his head.
