Mark Judge, the high school bestie of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, is now central to two of the three sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh. Judge was not only named by Kavanaugh’s first accuser as the only other person in the room during the assault, but Kavanaugh’s third accuser name-checked Judge no less than 10 times in her sworn declaration.
Most notably, the allegation made by Julie Swetnick that she and other women were the victims of “gang” or “train” rapes where Judge and Kavanaugh were present lines up perfectly with the recollection of one of Judge’s former girlfriends.
Elizabeth Rasor, who met Judge at Catholic University and dated him for about three years, told the New Yorker that she couldn’t sit quietly by and let Judge whitewash his years at Georgetown Prep. Judge has called Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault claim “just absolutely nuts” and said in a statement that he “never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes.” But here’s what Rasor told the New Yorker:
Rasor stressed that “under normal circumstances, I wouldn’t reveal information that was told in confidence,” but, she said, “I can’t stand by and watch him lie.” […] Rasor recalled that Judge had told her ashamedly of an incident that involved him and other boys taking turns having sex with a drunk woman. Rasor said that Judge seemed to regard it as fully consensual. She said that Judge did not name others involved in the incident, and she has no knowledge that Kavanaugh participated. But Rasor was disturbed by the story and noted that it undercut Judge’s protestations about the sexual innocence of Georgetown Prep.
Judge’s lawyer has now issued another statement saying he “vehemently denies” the new allegations made by Swetnick.
In that case, Judge should have to deny those allegations (along with those of Dr. Blasey Ford) under oath.
