Kavanaugh accuser opens up about her life since Senate hearings

When Christine Blasey Ford saw that Brett Kavanaugh was President Trump's top pick to fill the Supreme Court vacancy in the summer of 2018, she said she felt the need to act.

Ford said it was her sense of civic duty that drove her to come forward and speak about her alleged interaction with the recently seated Supreme Court justice, as NPR reported. After it was revealed that her accusations appeared to be fabricated, she fell out of the public eye but her false accusations have followed her.

Despite this and the outcome of Kavanaugh's nomination, she stood by her story and she still has the support of the Democrat Party.

The Testimony

Ford claimed in her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that she was sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh at a party in the Washington, D.C., area when they were adolescents.

When the time came that it was Kavanaugh's turn to testify, he refuted the incident, even providing detailed calendars of his time when he was interacting with the people and places where Ford said she was assaulted.

The accuser said, "My story just can't be about the three months in 2018 when my life exploded in front of the world's eyes."

She made the comments in her new book "One Way Back," where she asserts that her life weaves together surfing, statistics, motherhood, friendships, and politics.

Recent Interview

Ford stated in a Morning Edition interview that she hadn't been prepared to look back on how Kavanaugh's ascent to the U.S. Supreme Court completely changed her life until a few years ago. She made the decision to write her own tale because she was sick of what she believed to be a never-ending smear campaign.

Ironically, all evidence indicates that she was the one who attempted to smear Justice Kavanaugh with false accusations of a terrible crime.

Ford claims that even though she moved far from Washington, the events of her formative years there will never truly fade. Ford was reluctant to testify in public, but he persisted.

She writes that her passion for surfing, which Ford compares to facing the power of ocean waves, gave her the strength to do so.

"You've got to take the wave and you might wipe out. You might get crushed and held under by three waves or you might get a great wave, you know? But you're going to have to take it," she told NPR's Michel Martin.

Tens of thousands of letters were sent to Ford by admirers and critics alike.

According to her recent interview, she asserts that has faced years of attacks on her sanity and character, was forced to employ a security team, and has to hide her family after threats to her person and her family.
