.: “I do agree with Senator Murray that you owe these women the presumption of innocence or at least to assume that they’re telling the truth, they're not making this up—which means that it is the Senate’s obligation to take this seriously..."

Sen. Murray: “The Anita Hill hearing was a disaster, but they did have an FBI investigation, they did have other witnesses—there were other ways to judge this. The Senate Republicans have taken this away.”

After the bungled Anita Hill hearings in 1991, women everywhere—incl. me—were inspired to fight for change. If Republicans continue bullying Dr. Ford like we saw then, women across the US are going to rise up & Republicans are going to pay a huge price.

“The message that it’s a hiccup, that we’re going to plow right through this is exactly what we don’t want to hear today.”

“I sense that again…People saying he’s got the votes, we’re just going to deal with this ‘hiccup.’ That kind of conversation is what leads many people—women and men—saying they don’t get it, particularly now in the movement.”

Witnessing the bullying of Dr. Ford reminds me so much of the mistreatment Anita Hill endured after bravely coming forward to share her story. I came into the US Senate because I didn’t want to see another woman—or any survivor—treated that way again.

"The Senate failed the test with Anita Hill in 1991... here we are today, how the Senate handles this and Senate Republicans handle this, will be a test of this time, this time," says on hearing from Dr. Ford and Brett Kavanaugh this week.

"That's the way the Senate Republicans have set this up: Do you believe her or do you believe him? That is exactly why we've been pressing for an FBI investigation," says on the Senate hearing from Dr. Ford and Brett Kavanaugh this week.

Now that Dr. Ford has formally agreed to come to Judiciary Committee hearing, all eyes are on Senate GOP to see how they treat a sexual assault survivor. The Senate failed test in ’91, we must do better now. –PM

Dr. Ford has made the brave decision to testify and share her experience of being sexually assaulted by Judge Kavanaugh. I hope Senate Republicans now agree to listen and treat her fairly and with respect. –PM
