Comments on Confirmation Hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh
Andronici speaks at rally of survivors in opposition to Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation.
“In my opinion, I think the questions that we’re asking are all wrong,” Andronici said. “Not whether or not we’re denying this man a seat on the Supreme Court unjustly, but how in God’s name did he even get to this level in the process? It’s pretty clear to me that they knew stuff like this was out there, and they chose to push him through anyway. Because they thought that women in the country would be silent. And I think the time for silence is past.”
“So when I think about this question of, ‘Why don’t people disclose’ ... the only answer I have is: that’s not the question. The question is, how in the hell--given how hard it is--do people have the courage to do that, and why aren’t we supporting each and every one of them, as if they are our heroes, trying to save a justice system that was not designed to handle sexual assault?”
