Ford is expected to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about this allegation on Thursday."

The new accuser claims Kavanuagh exposed himself to her at a college party.

second woman says that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh violated her sexually, according to a new report by the New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer. The woman, Deborah Ramirez, alleges that Kavanaugh “thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away” while they were both drinking at a dorm room party at Yale University.

Worse, Farrow and Mayer’s report suggests that Senate Republicans tried to speed up Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote upon learning of this second accuser. “Senior Republican staffers also learned of the allegation last week,” according to the report. “Soon after, Senate Republicans issued renewed calls to accelerate the timing of a committee vote.”

Ramirez’s accusation follows another allegation by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who says that Kavanaugh tried to rape her during a high school party when Ford, who is known professionally as Dr. Blasey, was only 15. Ford is expected to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about this allegation on Thursday.
