Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who shares an alma mater with the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has signed an open letter supporting her allegations.

Christine Blasey Ford came forward amid Kavanaugh’s confirmation process to accuse him of sexually assaulting her while she was a high school student at Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Maryland. Since the allegations broke on Sunday, around 200 of the school’s alumni signed a letter of support, writing that Ford’s allegation “is all too consistent with stories we heard and lived while attending Holton. Many of us are survivors ourselves.”

Louis-Dreyfus also happens to be an alumna of Holton-Arms, and on Monday she tweeted that her signature was among those collected.

Here’s a little bit of info about Kavanaugh’s “alleged” co-attacker, Mark Judge, from the Washington Post. Apparently, he really loves Noel Coward and domestic violence:

And when he’s not advocating we strike certain women like gongs, Mark is pondering why evil “Social Justice Warriors” want to stop his rape-y demonstrations of “uncontrollable male passion”:

Two years earlier, in an ode to “sexy” pulp novels, Judge lamented “social justice warriors” who confuse rape with innocent demonstrations of masculinity. He wrote then of “an ambiguous middle ground, where the woman seems interested and indicates, whether verbally or not, that the man needs to prove himself to her.”

“If that man is any kind of man, he’ll allow himself to feel the awesome power, the wonderful beauty, of uncontrollable male passion,” Judge continued. To illustrate his point, he linked to a scene from the 1981 film “Body Heat,” in which the hero forcibly breaks into a woman’s home and is rewarded with a kiss.

Yeah, in Mark’s world “real men” are sexual abusers. This is who Kavanaugh was hanging out with the night he attacked Dr. Ford.

I really hope Mark is called to testify before the Senate.
