In their desperate attempt to smear Judge Brett Kavanaugh, many left-leaning commentators try to connect him to #MeToo malefactors like Harvey Weinstein.
For two reasons, this association is utterly unfair.
First, the #MeToo villains all exploited positions of power; Kavanaugh was a 17-year-old high school junior at the time of his alleged misdeeds.
Second, all the #MeToo villains were guilty of mistreating multiple women, sometimes hundreds; in Judge Kavanaugh’s case, he’s accused of mistreating only one woman, on a single occasion.
The timing of the accusations is also highly suspect.
If Senators allow this shady maneuver to succeed, they will shift our politics from merely ugly to outrageously unjust.
