In the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, two of his ex-girlfriends have spoken out. However, neither one has given the Democrats what they were hoping for.
In a Sunday interview, Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford revealed that she is Brett Kavanaugh’s high school-era accuser, claiming the judge pinned her down and groped her before she escaped some 35-years-ago.
Then, on Monday, two women who dated Kavanaugh came forward to tell their own stories. One dated the judge in high school while the other dated him in college, but both women have known Kavanaugh since high school, which is when Blasey Ford claims he attempted to rape her.
“Brett Kavanaugh and I have been good friends since high school,” Maura Fitzgerald, one of Kavanaugh’s ex-girlfriends, said in a statement disseminated by the conservative public relations firm CRC Public Relations. “I dated him in college and he was and is nothing like the person who has been described. He always conducted himself honorably with me at all times when we were together,” Fitzgerald added. “He was always a perfect gentleman, and I vouch for him completely.”
Another woman who dated Kavanaugh, whose first name also happens to be Maura, described him as “respectful, kind and thoughtful.” Maura Kane said in a statement released by CRC, “I’ve been friends with Brett Kavanaugh for over 35 years, and dated him during high school. In every situation where we were together he always respectful, kind and thoughtful.”
Both Maura Kane and Maura [Fitzgerald] attended Georgetown Visitation, according to an interview they gave to Fox News on Monday evening. Georgetown Visitation is the sister school to Georgetown Prep, the exclusive prep school that Brett Kavanaugh attended. Both high schools are single-sex; Georgetown Prep is all boys, and Georgetown Visitation is only for girls.
Kane and Fitzgerald say they knew Kavanaugh well, since the two schools were encouraged to socialize together. They both said that they certainly drank beer while in high school — Maura Kane stressed that drinking was legal for 18 year olds at that time. Both women said that they had never seen Kavanaugh get out-of-control drunk.
Maura Fitzgerald told Fox News that she really didn’t know Christine Ford, the woman who has accused Kavanaugh of holding her down and trying to sexually assault her. But Maura Kane said that she’d met Ford a few times and knew her slightly. Ford didn’t go to the same high school (Georgetown Visitation) as the other two women, but she was loosely in the same social circle and attended some of their gatherings.

But these weren’t the only women who came forward to vouch for Kavanaugh’s character in the wake of Blasey Ford’s accusations. More than five dozen other women who have known the judge since he was in high school also penned a letter in his defense to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Both Maura Kane and Maura Fitzgerald signed that letter, as well.
“We are women who have known Brett Kavanaugh for more than 35 years and knew him while he attended high school between 1979 and 1983. For the entire time we have known Brett Kavanaugh, he has behaved honorably and treated women with respect. We strongly believe it is important to convey this information to the Committee at this time,” the letter states.
“Brett attended Georgetown Prep, an all-boys high school in Rockville, Maryland. He was an outstanding student and athlete with a wide circle of friends. Almost all of us attended all girls high schools in the area. We knew Brett well through social events, sports, church, and various other activities. Many of us have remained close friends with him and his family over the years,” the letter goes on.
“Through the more than 35 years we have known him, Brett has stood out for his friendship, character, and integrity. In particular, he has always treated women with decency and respect. That was true when he was in high school, and it has remained true to this day,” the letter continues. “The signers of this letter hold a broad range of political views. Many of us are not lawyers, but we know Brett Kavanaugh as a person. And he has always been a good person.”
Indeed, it would seem that there are endless amounts of women willing to speak out on Kavanaugh’s behalf because he has been such a gentleman throughout his life.
