Sen. Baldwin & Sen. Johnson open to hearing from Kavanaugh accuser

MADISON (WKOW) — U.S. Senators from Wisconsin are open to hearing from the woman who accuses Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of a decades-old sexual assault.

Senator Tammy Baldwin (D) and Senator Ron Johnson (R) both are on board with hearing from Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Forn, who claims he assaulted her at a high school party in the 1980s.

On WTMJ Radio Monday morning, Johnson said he wants to hear from Ford and Kavanaugh on the accusation.

“I think the Senate Judiciary Committee will certainly listen to her and I think that’s very appropriate that they do,” said Johnson. “I think it’s also appropriate that they listen to what Brett Kavanaugh has to say as well.

Sen. Baldwin tweeted that she read Dr. Ford’s letter and found the allegations “deeply” disturbing.
