“I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents. I ask that she bring those filings forward so that we can learn date, time, and place!”
You have no doubt, Mr. President?
I know exactly why she didn’t tell.
I also was a stupid girl who went to a stupid party
I was underage and took the alcohol given to me by men
I was a sloppy drunk child who was assaulted.
I was a broken spirit full of shame.
I was a desperate daughter who could NEVER tell her mother
I was no longer her sweet little girl…
And I blamed myself.
And I couldn’t bear to hurt her.
My mother is dead now.
And she died NEVER knowing
That at the sleepover
She drove me to
When I was 15
I was raped.
Mr. President, I know exactly why she didn’t tell.
