‘It’s the worst kind of reaction to claims of sexual assault’

RUSH EXCERPT:

BLUMENTHAL: "Appalling is the right word. Mocking and ridicule ago survival of sexual assault. It recalled me about Dr. Christine blasey Ford talking about the alleged laughter of mark judge and Judge Kavanaugh when they assaulted her so it was demeaning and dismiss I have not only to her but also the entire community of survivors. It describes why so few people come forward because they face this public shaming and ridiculing. It’s the worst kind of reaction to claims of sexual assault."
