Since the Senate Judiciary Committee Record is “open” til Monday 9/10 at NOON it would behoove one of the @SenateDems to submit declarations offering proof that he lied along with a referral for a PERJURY investigation. #WhatsAtStake #StopKavanaugh slate.com/news-and-polit… IF declarations allege that Kavanaigh lied under oath, Senators have an obligation to determine whether he perjured himself before they vote on his confirmation. Would Republicans investigate a Democrat? In a heartbeat! And Democrats would agree.

Less than 9 hours into the #StopKavanaugh fight a skeptic already gave me the “don’t bother it’s over” posting in response to my call to action. Let’s take a moment to remember WHY we fight. 1/ We fight for our rights - for liberty and jusice and equality for all. We engage in politics to answer a call to service in our communities, in the streets, and in the corridors of power because we want to imprint our humanity on the laws that govern us all. 2/

Looking at the facts thru my lens as a sex assault prosecutor and victims’ advocate, I believe Jim Jordan knew his colleague was molesting kids on their wrestling team. Many people in these situations know yet say nothing, more out of denial & disgust than venality; still #heknew Even giving Jim Jordan the benefit of the doubt when he said (NOT under oath) he didn’t directly SEE or HEAR something specific - he knew the doctor was showering with the team and kids were complaining about his lecherous attitude. Think about it... that’s just gross...

Just came off the streets after march and rally with hotel workers of @unitehere and #publicschool teachers @uesf who just earned a pay raise thru SF’s #YesOnG ballot campaign waged with @SFDemocrats @sflabor and @TeamPelosi. People are angry and scared about #Janus.... 1/thread Christine and SF teachers union leaders marching We marched with hundreds of hotel workers of @unitehere who are in contract negotiations with massively lucrative #SF hotel chains that will not give their workers a contract with fair wages. Message: “One Job Should be Enough” It’s NOT - and #Janus makes their lives harder. 2/ Susie Christine Rafael marching

This #RobPorter mess brings up MANY issues we in the #domesticabuse prevention space see routinely. As a #DV prosecutor on the early days post-OJ with CA's Nicole Brown laws new on the books there was a LOT of "you overreacted; he's a good guy at work." Sound familiar, #metoo? 1/ So many #domesticabuse victims and survivors have a similar story: good guy in public; horrible and controlling in private. So we EXPECT lots of "he was a good guy; she must be over-reacting; this is not the man we know" #RobPorter-type defenses. they have 2 faces. 2/
