At the height of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation debacle, a woman from Kentucky claimed to be “Jane Doe” from Oceanside, CA, who penned a letter to the Senate claiming Kavanaugh raped her. Following an investigation, Judy Munro-Leighton admitted she made the whole story up “to get attention.”
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley ordered investigations into Jane Doe’s and Julie Swetnick’s accusations last month.
The depiction of the events painted a gruesome tale of a sexual predator who wouldn’t take no for an answer. She described how Kavanaugh and another unknown boy raped her repeatedly in the back of Kavanaugh’s car.
Grassley wrote to Attorney General Jeff Sessions requesting his department look into the matter. Here is Grassley’s letter, the original accusation, and Monro-Leighton’s email:
Women have a hard enough time receiving justice for sexual assaults without the waters being muddied by false accusations. The outrage over Justice Kavanaugh is so tainting it has driven some women to hurt their own cause.
