The courage of #ChristineBlaseyFord to #StopKavanaugh has given me strength to speak out about an experience I had years ago.

I was dating a man 19, I was 17. We had consensual sexual experiences together.

We went to dinner, movies, & 1 night he forced himself on me. 1/4 I lived at home, my mom was out. We were in my bedroom. I knew him for months. What began as kissing, escalated a bit further, but I had wanted to call it a night. He wouldn't take no for an answer. He threw me down on my bed, & pinned my arms behind my head. 2/4

On the 17 Anniversary of #September11th, 2001. I wanted to share my story.

I was born & raised in Manhattan. When I was young, I loved going to the Twin Towers, they were a magical place for me.

Being 100 stories high and seeing the whole island of Manhattan was amazing. I was at work. At the time, I was working for NBC and had an office with a TV. I came in that bright, blue-sky crystal clear morning early to catch-up on some work. At 9am someone came running into my office and told me to turn on my Television.

On 7/27/17, the day of the #SkinnyRepeal Vote-A-Rama, I went to DC to meet with any Senate office that would listen to my healthcare story. I was terrified of #ACA repeal.

I had 8 spontaneous meetings that day.

At 515pmET I met w/@SenJohnMcCain Legislative Assistant. 1/5 @SenJohnMcCain's LA began to cry when I told her I had #Lupus (turned out her friend has it). She apologized & explained her friend had to move from DC, to a climate more conducive to the disease. But now she didn't have the same care. So I provided resources to help. 2/5

On the 8th Anniversary of #ACA it's crucial to demonstrate how our President has undermined healthcare for MILLIONS via #ACASabotage since his inauguration.

This THREAD is dedicated to everyone who used their voice to save healthcare & why we all must be a #HealthCareVoter 1/30 1/20/17: Trump's #ACA Executive Order directs federal agencies begin ❌ ACA “to maximum extent permitted by law.”

EO delays ACA provisions imposing tax, fee, or other costs & develops “free & open market” in health care among states.

Repeal legislation begins. #ACASabotage 2/30
