"Let's hope history doesn't repeat itself in 2018". For many observers, the situation has strong echoes of Anita Hill's accusations against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas in 1991.
Thomas was confirmed - though by a 52-28 margin, the closest in modern history - but only after days of testimony from witnesses about his interactions with Hill in different government jobs.
They include: balancing public interest in the case with treating both sides fairly; establishing a "neutral investigative body with experience in sexual misconduct cases" to probe the allegations and report back to the committee; taking the time to thoroughly examine the case - "That the committee plans to hold a hearing this coming Monday is discouraging", Hill said. For 250 years we have believed the he in these scenarios. Overall, there are now 23 women in the Senate: 17 Democrats and six Republicans. "Ted Cruz in Texas".
In a statement issued Friday, Hill said, "I have seen firsthand what happens when such a process is weaponized against an accuser, and no one should have to endure that again".
"We can not brush aside these extraordinarily serious allegations in an unseemly rush to confirm JudgeKavanaugh to a lifetime seat", Leahy said in a separate statement issued later Monday morning.

That incident inspired a record number of women to run for federal office that cycle, including Murray, who was elected the following year.
"I want to hear from Dr Ford", he said. In particular, he has always treated women with decency and respect.
Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) that the committee should delay its vote pending an investigation, Leahy said, "That would make sense".
"If they wanted to be, I would certainly do that, but as you know, they say this is not really their thing". Ford said she decided it was her "civic responsibility" to come forward, and now a new hearing will take place.
"She will have the opportunity to be heard Monday", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said at press conference Tuesday, while dodging a question about whether other potentially corroborating witnesses should be brought in to testify. "We should not have gotten to this point". Feinstein acknowledged her knowledge of the accusation last week but kept Ford's identity private until the Sunday Post article. She defended her decision to keep the letter private Tuesday, saying she was respecting Ford's own request for anonymity and following procedure for working with federal investigators. "We were going through all of that process". However, they're both more conservative than Collins and Murkowski.

Ortiz, a 10-year Border Patrol veteran, was arrested early Saturday after the fifth woman escaped and found a state trooper. However, when the suspect pulled a gun on the woman inside his vehicle, she fled and was able to contact police.
