[ASI] One Scandal After Another

To ASI Supporters:

The Kavanaugh nomination is a debacle. Chairman Sen. Grassley has given the accuser one deadline after another. Now, a Republican staffer helping to counter the sexual assault allegations against Judge Kavanaugh has resigned after being charged with sexual harassment.

This is from the “With friends like these, who needs enemies” department.

I previously noted that one of Kavanaugh’s friends, Ed Whelan, published – and then deleted and apologized for– a post saying the sexual assault on Ford was carried out by someone else at Georgetown Prep who looked like Kavanaugh! Whelan is the President of the Ethics and Public Policy Center and blogger for National Review.

Garrett Ventry

Now, CRC Public Relations, a conservative P.R. firm that has represented the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, has been implicated in the Ed Whelan debacle. Garrett Ventry, who served as a communications aide to the Judiciary committee chaired by Sen. Grassley, has resigned. Ventry was employed by CRC Public Relations. Ventry also resigned Saturday from CRC Public Relations, where he had been on a leave of absence to work for the Judiciary Committee, NBC News reported.

“Sources familiar with the situation said Ventry was let go from Bell’s office [the office of North Carolina House Majority Leader John Bell] after parts of his résumé were found to have been embellished, and because he faced an accusation of sexual harassment from a female employee of the North Carolina General Assembly's Republican staff,” NBC News added.

CRC Public Relations feeds information to Matt Drudge, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity.

But the push to confirm judge Brett Kavanaugh has been dogged by one scandal after another. Why? Kavanaugh is a flawed product. And flawed people are pushing it.

Our new ASI TV interview with Garland Favorito looks at what he calls “the Deep State chess match being played by Donald Trump and Senate Democrats at the [Kavanaugh] confirmation hearing.”

It is all a major diversion from the critical point about Kavanaugh’s character – his involvement in the Foster death case. Watch our show to understand the stakes.

This is the real scandal.
