GOP senator: Kavanaugh’s ‘a good man’ even if he tried to rape a girl
“If that was true, I think it would be hard for senators to not consider who the judge is today,” Hatch said Monday. “That’s the issue. Is this judge a really good man? And he is. And by any measure he is.”
In other words, being an attempted rapist is not disqualifying. It’s not even relevant. Kavanaugh, according to Hatch, is a good man even if he is also a violent criminal who forever traumatized a teenage girl.
