How does she benefit by coming forward? Awards and close to a million dollars. And there is no such thing as “speaking one’s truth,” it’s either the truth or it isn’t.
Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser has been nominated by her alma mater for its distinguished alumna award for “speaking truth to power.”
According to a report in CNN, Christine Blasey Ford is being pushed for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Distinguished Alumna Award because she was “speaking truth to power” when she publicly accused then-Judge Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
Jennifer Ho, a professor of English at UNC, stated in her letter nominating Ms. Blasey Ford that her testimony “was something that was extraordinary in how ordinary it was: she told the truth about a sexual assault she experienced when she was fifteen years old at the hands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.”
Justice Kavanaugh has denied attempting to rape Ms. Blasey Ford.
Ms. Blasey Ford has a bachelor’s degree in psychology from UNC, which she received in 1988.
