IBD Editorial: Will Republicans Surrender To The Dems' Total War Against Kavanaugh?

Politics of Personal Destruction: Even as Christine Blasey Ford's keeps changing the details of her claimed high school assault by Brett Kavanaugh, a new, even less credible, decades-old accusation emerges. When Democrats sacrificed their ability to filibuster Supreme Court picks, who knew they'd sink this low? How Republicans respond will determine their fate for years to come.
Let's recap.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein kept the letter she'd received from Ford hidden for months, springing it on the public only after the confirmation hearings were over. At the time, Feinstein said, Ford wanted to remain anonymous.
But as soon as Ford revealed her identity, her story started to lose credibility. She told the Washington Post she couldn't remember where or when (or even what year) the roughly 36-year-old assault supposedly took place.
Ford's Ever-Changing Account
In addition, the Post found that she'd given a different account of the party to a marriage counselor in 2012. In that version, four boys assaulted her (she didn't name Kavanaugh). She told the Post that there were four boys at the party but only two assaulted her. She said counselor's notes were wrong.
Here's how the Post reported it last week: "The (marriage counselors) notes say four boys were involved, a discrepancy Ford says was an error on the therapist's part. Ford said there were four boys at the party but only two in the room. "
In her letter to Sen. Feinstein, Ford also said that the party "included me and 4 others."
So, for years, Ford had clearly maintained that there were four other people — all boys — at the party.
Now, suddenly, Ford claims that one of the four was actually a girl. And that she was a lifelong friend of Ford's. But the woman, Leland Ingham Keyser, says she doesn't know Kavanaugh and has no idea about the party in question.
Ford's story has not only kept changing, every one of the four people Ford now says were there has denied her claim. --->
