"It's a lot of work — maybe they don't want to do it," said 85-year-old Sen. Chuck Grassley in the aftermath of Kavanaugh and Ford's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The Senate Judiciary Committee has 11 Republican members, all male, and 10 Democratic members, four of whom are women. Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) thinks the lack of women representation is no big deal. As a matter of fact, Grassley said it might be too much work for women to handle.
Misogyny in full force.
Kevin Jackson, a Black Fox News contributor, was fired for his Twitter comments during the hearings about the women who accused Kavanaugh of assault and misconduct.
"#ChristineBlaseyFord academic problems came from her PROMISCUITY!" he wrote on Twitter during the Senate appearance. "Dang girl stop opening your legs and OPEN A BOOK!"
Attorney Michael Avenatti said Julie Swetnick, the third woman to step forward, has evidence of women being targeted with booze and drugs to gang rape them.
UPDATE: 12:30 p.m.: Third Woman Steps Forward to Accuse Kavanaugh of Sexual Misconduct
Announced on Twitter by attorney Michael Avenatti, Julie Swetnick, a Washington resident, and former student at Gaithersburg High School, claims she was the victim of a gang rape in 1982 that Kavnaugh was present for.
"During the incident, I was incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me," Swetnick said. "I believe I was drugged using Quaaludes or something similar placed in what I was drinking."
She also said, "I have a firm recollection of seeing boys lined up outside rooms at many of these parties waiting for their 'turn' with a girl inside the room. These boys included Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh."
"Under no circumstances should Brett Kavanaugh be confirmed absent a full and complete investigation," Avenatti said.

Rachel Mitchell, an Arizona prosecutor specializing in sex crimes, will question Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford at tomorrow's hearing.
Four people have since corroborated Christine Blasey Ford's story in signed letters, including her husband, and three friends who said she has mentioned the assault over the last five years.
But Kavanaugh, in a Fox News interview Monday night, said that he will defend his "lifelong record of promoting equality for the women."
And now there is, potentially, a third female accuser, according to attorney Michael Avenatti — a witness and a victim — to discredit the reputation Kavanaugh says he built.
What reputation was he working on?
A tale of a complete lack of diversity causing bad decisions, and shifting opinions nationwide, as well as a teachable moment for corporate America.
Having zero diversity, and by trying to make it "Kavanaugh vs. Ford," the old, white Republican men lost control of the nomination, and made it about them versus all women, a situation that, at best, will be a Pyrrhic victory.
