"this is what we do to to uppity pretend sexual assault victims that aren't named Paula Jones and all those other nineteen "real" victims that Trump paraded and seated in the front row at his first debate with Hillary Clinton on national tv, btw there ain't nothing like an all expense paid trip / vacation compliments of Mr Trump, it waa first class all the way there and the pet carriers / baggage deck on the way back but hey 'Us girls had fun'"

What should they do? Question her themselves and have them be attacked for being "old white men attacking a survivor"?

This is very transparent, no doubt, but what else could they do? Have Hatch or Graham do it?

Yes, they should do their job! Also, they could...yanno...appoint some of their female senators to the Judiciary committee.

There's 6 female GOP senators, they can't serve on every committee.. That's the fault of the voters.

Come on man, I'm with you that there is an issue with women not being represented in congress, with not being appointed to certain committees, but on the current issue, having a female attorney come in is not a bad move.

Had they not done it, the left would have complained it didn't happen that way.

Not to mention she sounds very qualified. She's a specialist on this issue - not just a talking head with an opinion.

"Had they not done it, the left would have complained it didn't happen that way."

I don't think so, I think every one on the left was eager for these old windbags to ask the questions.

Judiciary just seems like one of those committees where you should have a woman, if for the optics if nothing else. Murkowski even has a JD.

Of course, they did. The kinds of questions which you have to ask female sexual abuse victims are not ones I would want to have to ask. Throw a bunch of untrained, male partisan hacks to stand up for Dr. Ford, right? That's red meat for the base.

I don't expect Mitchell's questioning to be right-leaning in this context. If she doesn't cause the result some people want to see, I suspect we'll see the usual reactions.
