The site is not a professional homepage set up by the newly appointed supreme court justice; it is, instead, a page dedicated to helping sexual assault survivors
If you were to navigate your browser to BrettKavanaugh.com for some reason, you might expect to find a professional homepage set up by the newly appointed supreme court justice. Perhaps a list of his accomplishments, or a rsum with a handsome headshot? You would be wrong, however, because the url is now a resource for sexual assault survivors.
We Believe Survivors reads text overlaid on an image of the supreme court.
The start of Brett Kavanaughs tenure on the supreme court may look like a victory for one interest group or another, the page explains. But, more importantly, it is putting a national focus on the issue of sexual assault and how we as a country can and should do more to prevent it and to support those who have experienced it. This past month, thousands of survivors came forward to tell their stories. We applaud your bravery. We believe you.
The page was set up by a group called Fix the Court, a non-partisan supreme court accountability and transparency group, they announced on Tuesday.
The groups executive director, Gabe Roth, explained he bought the url, and its .org and .net permutations, three years ago, figuring it might be useful in confirmation battles down the line.
I believe Dr Ford. I believe Professor Hill. I also believe that asking for forgiveness is a sign of maturity and strength, not weakness, he wrote.
On Tuesday at a White House swearing-in ceremony, the president lied that Kavanaugh had been proven innocent of sexual assault allegations brought against him by Dr Christine Blasey Ford and others.
The concept of squatting on a url for political trolling purposes isnt uncommon. In the 2016 election a number of candidates, including Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, and most notably Carly Fiorina had urls associated with their names used by opponents.
