Christine Blasey Ford's bogus 'bravery' award nomination

WASHINGTON DC- SEPTEMBER 27 Christine Blasey Ford with lawyers Debra S. Katz left and Michael R. Bromwich answers questions at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill

The college professor whose uncorroborated charge of sexual assault roiled the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court has been nominated for a distinguished alumna award at her alma mater, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

We also know that dramatic, emotion-charged testimony by both protagonists and a brief FBI investigation ultimately had little effect on the outcome, as the full Senate voted to confirm Kavanaugh, giving the Supreme Court a fairly solid, 5-4 conservative majority.

Ms. Ho insisted that the letter and the nomination are not partisan acts.

Ho said more than 1,000 people have signed the letter. Several signers listed their names as Donald Trump, Kanye West and Christine Blasey Ford.

There may be people reading this nomination letter who will take issue with Dr. Blasey Ford's testimony or who may see this letter as an example of partisan politics. It also reflected on aspects of her testimony that some sexual assault survivors found particularly provoking and - for better or worse - relatable.

Nicklaus, Tiger, so many Hall of Famers, that's what you want growing up, that's what you dream of", Koepka said. He missed the first major of the year but still managed to win two of the last three majors of the year.

Sen. Jeff Flake, the Arizona Republican who struck a deal last week to demand more time for the to investigate the allegations, said the new report did not contain anything to corroborate the claims by Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez of sexual assault and exposure by the judge at parties in the 1980s.

"She did something really extraordinary", Ho said. She spoke clearly and precisely about her experiences with trauma, educating the committee and the rest of us about the way certain memories are encoded in the hippocampus when we experience traumatic events, while others fade away.

Hu said she plans to officially forward the nomination to the university on Sunday, Oct. 14. Alums can be recommended for the award by the UNC Chapel Hill Faculty Council and are approved by the university's Board of Trustees.

According to WRAL, the criteria for the Distinguished Alumna award is any graduate who "has made an outstanding contribution to humanity in any walk of life".

Ho said she did not expect the level of "trolling" she's had with the petition.
